What Are You Inspired to Do?

Art Education (PK-Grade 12)

Inspiring others through creativity, art education majors have the opportunity to combine their passion for art while fostering the artistic growth of young students grades PK-12. Mastering a wide variety of art mediums, coupled with education curriculum, enables art education majors to prepare specialized art programming for their classrooms.

Knowledge of art history, ceramics, computer graphics and design, drawing, painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture and working with metals and fibers helps to make art education majors exceptionally marketable to future employers in both public and private schools.
