School of Art Education

Art Education Degrees from Academy of Art University combine theory and practice to create a one-of-a-kind program. An Art Education degree offers the most comprehensive and versatile education in the visual arts that art education schools can provide by:

  • Refining perceptual, problem solving and aesthetic valuing skills
  • Connecting communication and visual literacy skills
  • Expanding cultural and historical perspective
  • Extending and applying the visual arts across other disciplines and real world experience

Through the Art Education curriculum students learn to reflect on their learning process and apply these insights to future teaching in a variety of venues. Students from the Art Education School will graduate with a Visual Arts Portfolio and a Presentation Journal of Reflective Practice and Lesson Plans.
