Teacher Certification

The Visual Arts Education program is designed to provide candidates with conceptual as well as practical experiences for teaching art. IUB’s art education licensure program prepares candidates to work with students in grades P-12 as they explore the world of art. The curriculum helps candidates develop instructional techniques in a variety of artistic media, from painting to computer art. Candidates will also receive a strong grounding in education theory, instructional methodologies, and content area coursework. In addition, candidates will have the opportunity to get real-world experience teaching at Saturday Art School, a community arts education program for students in grades K-6.
