Arts Teaching

The Arts Teaching Program in the College of Fine Arts is an interdisciplinary academic program that prepares and trains educators to work authentically alongside children, youth, and citizens in a wide variety of educational, community, and artistic contexts. In response to the collaborative and expansive work the field of arts education has grown to encompass, the College of Fine Arts seeks to meet the demands of more interdisciplinary practice. The program provides educators and teaching artists opportunities to not only teach the arts in their traditional forms, but also in ways that promote interpersonal, social, political, and environmental action.
