Art Education

Memphis College of Art


The Art Education Program (AEP) at Memphis College of Art is dedicated to upholding the college’s Mission and Vision of preparing individuals for lives of creating, problem solving and critical thinking. We prepare artist/teachers to take a Constructivist approach to teaching by creating meaningful and relevant art experiences for their students.


Our artist/teachers will be reflective practitioners who know that teaching art is an art form. They will be prepared for teaching art by critically analyzing and synthesizing artistic and educational theory and practice in order to meet the needs of pluralistic school communities.
