Concordia University, Nebraska’s Art Department will be holding Saturday School morning sessions for elementary and middle-level students to learn about and create art. The sessions will be taught by Concordia students enrolled in Methods of Art Education and observed by professor and department chairman Don Robson.  

The sessions, available to Pre-kindergarten through 8th grade students, are divided by age group. Each session will be based on a discipline-based art education unit plan, addressing art history, aesthetics, constructive criticism, and art making.  

“The Concordia students enrolled in the Methods of Art Education course compose discipline-based art lesson plans, which address art history, aesthetics, constructive criticism and art making to teach to the students on Saturdays,” Robson said. “Our hope is that these classes inspire young people to develop their talents and let their love for art grow.” 

All sessions will run from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. The classes will be held on Concordia University’s campus in Brommer Art Center, Room 123. A $5.00 fee per student is required for registration and supplies. Each session has 25 seats available.
