Art Education


Return to Academic Programs Return to: Academic Programs

The Art Education Department prepares students to be skillful, imaginative, and socially engaged artist-teachers. Students can choose from four programs:

Art Teacher Education provides a broad, generalist education in studio work and eligibility for state licensure to teach in the visual arts.

Studo Education provides expertise and preparation in a single studio area and eligibility for state licensure to teach in the visual arts.

Community Education prepares students to do entry-level work in settings outside the traditional classroom - in hospitals, after-school programs, cultural centers, or homeless shelters and/or do graduate work in community arts education. The studio portion of the program provides a broad, generalist education in art.

Students in all three programs take introductory seminars in art and human development and contemporary teaching and contemporary art practices. Art Ed students learn about different instructional methods and the challenges that their students face in their daily lives. In addition, all students are required to complete five or six interdisciplinary portfolio courses that develop and demonstrate their competency in art-making.

MassArt’s Saturday Studios program affords students the opportunity to gain  hands-on experience as educators before their extrenal practicums by teaching Saturday morning art classes to children grades 4 through 12 with support and supervision of Art Ed. faculty.
