Art Education Pathway

The Art Education Pathway focuses on preparing students who are interested in exploring a career in the visual arts education field. Students will be exposed to instruction and experiences to develop competencies in teaching and grading in art education. In addition, students will be required to complete observation hours in an art classroom environment through our job shadowing program. These hours will be completed at a local school.
