Artist Teacher Scheme

MANCHESTER and the North West

MA Maker Teacher

Manchester Metropolitan University, 2.5 years part time
The MA Maker Teacher allows art teachers to explore their own creativity as well as the impact that this exploration has on the students they teach. The ability to move beyond the narrow confines of the more traditional ‘fine art’ based education courses, towards the proposed wider art and craft based courses means that teachers and students have the opportunity to engage with a far wider, more innovative and experimental range of learning opportunities.

Units for this course will include. Creativity in art, craft and design education and related museum and gallery contexts. Maker as teacher, teacher as maker. The creative journey, making as a personal pursuit. Art, craft and design education, curriculum development and innovation.
