EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHY STATEMENTS
This example of an educational philosophy statement by a senior undergraduate art education major addresses her beliefs about what should be taught in art, student learners, technology for art education, and the importance of addressing visual culture in art education. She has identified hyperlinks of “Teachable Moments,” “Computer Applications,” and “Concepts that are challenging” to link to art lessons and reflections on teaching. Author: Kristi Puhl

This art lesson page created by a practicing art teacher is a beautifully composed and includes an image by the artist, Andy Goldsworthy, and students’ works created in the style of Andy Goldsworthy. Author: Eileen van DeHuvel
HOW TO CREATE A MATRIX OR ALIGNMENT SUMMARY OF YOUR
By creating a matrix like this, you could create hyperlinks with the “X.” This could serve as an introduction page to your portfolio that would allow the viewer to navigate the e-portfolio as he/she chooses, and to locate documents of particular interest.
This introductory page to an art education student’s e-portfolio is highly personal, creative, and artistic, and adds intrigue and visual interest to the portfolio.
This introductory page to an undergraduate e-portfolio is very visual and utilizes clip art and copyright free images. She also includes some interest with a quote from well known artist. Author: Rebecca Nimm
These two examples use subtle variations of color, an interesting, assymetrical and offset design, and embody SIMPLICITY!
This is an example of a well-designed page with good clear photographs of student work. All the photos are linked to lesson plan descriptions.
This is a nice example of a home page that incorporates an image of a painting by art teacher in the background. She has imposed an organizational chart that allows the painting to peer through.
This sample page from a preservice art teacher’s portfolio utilizes an existing template from PowerPoint. You may find that you may want to use a relevant template to eliminate the time spent on designing an e-portfolio. The downside is that all the pages will look the same and inserting images upon pages with images may look too busy. However, with existing templates you will have some creative outlet with selecting fonts and font colors.
A freshman preservice art teacher’s visual metaphor page in her portfolio combines text with relevant images that were likely a PowerPoint page design.
A very upbeat and colorful e-portfolio design by a freshman pre-service art teacher. This page combines her visual metaphor about teaching art with a statement.
Typically, undergraduate pre-service art teaching portfolios are organized in two ways. They may be organized around the 4 Domains of Teaching: Domain I: Planning and Preparation, Domain II: Instruction Domain III: Evaluation, and Domain IV: Professional Responsibilities as in this example.
They may also be organized around the Teaching Standards as in the following examples:
This preservice (senior) demonstrates her professional competencies using work from
her senior show that link to Wisconsin Standard 1 and that teachers must demonstrate
subject matter (art and art education) knowledge. The second slide links her art lesson planning evidence to meet multiple standards.
This preservice (junior) combined her beliefs about teaching and learning while linking them to the Wisconsin Standards. This demonstrates that she understands the Standards in relation to her own beliefs.
The difference between a teaching and an educational philosophy statement is that the educational philosophy contains reference to theory and theorists that support one’s claims and beliefs.
This undergraduate (junior) e-portfolio page needs to be enhanced with titles and dates of works and reflections. Each picture could serve as a LINK to a reflection with this information as well as a brief statement as to what the work is about, techniques used,
And what he/she learned as a result of creating the work, and what his/her new goals are.
ART LESSON SUMMARY PAGE
This is a nice bullet list summary about an art lesson for third graders. Take note at how much information and images can fit in a PowerPoint slide.
To extend the reader more opportunities, this slide could be linked:
This slide is rather compact and includes both an image of Chagall’s painting along with
Nicely designed page. This description of the project could be enhanced by the preservice art teacher stating WHY he or she thought it was successful.
This a a nice example of an art teacher’s portfolio page where she demonstrates how she uses a display board to enhance student learning in her classroom. Author: Eileen van DeHuvel
This is a really informative page about how this art teacher organizes her classroom and why it is important for her to show her students that she is organized. Author: Eileen van DeHuvel
WELL-DESIGNED FRONT PORTFOLIO PAGE
This inservice art teacher’s portfolio front page is organized around one of the ten Wisconsin Teaching Standards.
