Undergraduate Program - Art Education

Pre-credential Subject matter program in art

Change to the following
Art Education includes ART 130 (Aesthetics and Art Criticism),  ART 133 (Understanding and Creating Art), ART 134 (Interdisciplinary Art Education) ART 135 (Secondary School Art Education), and ART 192C (Senior Seminar). They are designed to provide an understanding of the behavioral aspects of art with regard to the creator, the viewer, and the developing person. In the courses, students learn to create art, understand the place of art in history and culture, understand theories of aesthetics and art criticism, understand developmental stages of children's art, and understand diversity and equity issues in art.

In addition to courses in art education, students take courses in art studio and art history. Art studio courses provide students the opportunity to gain artistic skills necessary for the personal mastery of established styles and for the exploration of new ones. Art history courses enable students to gain an appreciation for and an understanding of visual cultural heritage.

Students seeking a teaching credential should contact the Credential Advisor in the Art Department, Dr. Catherine Turrill (Department Chair). They must complete the Pre-Credential Program in Art and the Professional Education Program in the College of Education.

At this time, there are no full-time faculty members in the art education area. Class are taught by adjunct faculty.
