Art Education

Supported by their experiences in the studio area, art history, and criticism, students throughout the program engage in various types of teaching and related activities: they participate in the Schools studio program for children; observe teachers in the public schools; work with these teachers on special projects; and conclude with a semester practice teaching with carefully selected elementary and secondary school teachers.

Within this program, students concentrate not only on their development as artists, but extend this commitment to the education of others. Because the art education student also has a full concentration in a B.F.A. studio area, it will take five years to complete requirements.
