“Designing Comprehensive Curriculums & Drawing Dirty Pictures” with Dr. Olivia Gude

Published May 21, 2018

The FSU Department of Art Education presents Designing Comprehensive Curriculums & Drawing Dirty Picturesa workshop lead by Dr. Olivia Gude.

Join Dr. Olivia Gude to explore how you can develop artistically satisfying and educationally credible frameworks for planning K-12 art education curriculum in today’s diverse contemporary culture. The Bricolage Comprehensive Curriculum formulation eschews the notion of foundational curriculum, instead advancing a conception of comprehensive curriculum—comprehensive defined as “covering many eventualities.” Additionally, this FREE workshop includes methods for generating ideas and images with sometimes reluctant students, identifying and developing content, beginning making art without a preconceived plan, engaging in composition experimentation, and creating meaningful closure activities through peer exchange.


Dr. Olivia Gude is the Angela Gregory Paterakis Professor of Art Education at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and a Professor Emerita at the University of Illinois at Chicago. In 2014, she was awarded the National Art Education Association’s “Art Education Article of the Year,” Manuel Barkan Award, as well as the Illinois Art Education Association’s Higher Education Art Educator of the Year. Dr. Gude also received the 2009 NAEA Viktor Lowenfeld Award for significant contributions to the field of art education.

Designing Comprehensive Curriculums & Drawing Dirty Pictures will take place on June 1st, 2018, at FSU’s William Johnston Building from 9:00am to 3:00pm.
