Visual Art Education Program
Visual Art Education (VAE) is a high quality program emphasizing a balance of studio, art history, and education courses taught by experts in their fields.
In collaboration with the School of Education, VAE provides advanced level students with classroom and teaching experiences in area schools and community settings. Visual Art Education graduates are well prepared to be successful art educators and have a very high job placement rate.
Facilities and Resources
The dedicated VAE classroom comfortably accommodates students in both classroom and studio situations, complete with full supplies for doing most school-related art projects as well as a state-of-the-art projector for presentations.
The Spencer Museum of Art, an independent facility, is also significant resource for the VAE Program. Students utilize the museum’s collections through gallery tours, museum staff talks, museum events, and a VAE methods course that meets on site.
