The Art Education Department prepares students to be skillful, imaginative, and socially engaged artist-teachers.

In this major, students explore teaching and learning in visual art through developing a studio art practice in addition to taking
teaching and general education classes. Students choose to have a studio specialization or to take a broad range of studio classes.

Students in both tracks 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.

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.
