Art Education

Children painting in a classroom

The program in Art Education at the School of Art & Design prepares students to be teachers of art at all levels of public, private, and community education.

Our goal is to make art making more accessible in the lives of children, adolescents, and young adults. Your coursework will include studio, art history, and education courses, and culminate in a semester of student teaching in the public schools.

Additionally, community engagement opportunities—from short-term field work to semester-long internships—will broaden your academic experience and prepare you to become a professional in the field of art education.

The art education program is located on the first floor of the School of Art & Design, in the Joann Cole Mitte building.
