Art Education Licensure
Building on Western State Colorado University's excellent offerings in studio arts, art history and the liberal arts, an Art Education emphasis helps students build understanding and tools to recognize the dynamic relationships between life experience, the creative process and the art product.
Students in this program learn skills and techniques to teach others, as well as skills that help them discover personal sources of creative energy.
Teachers go beyond communicating form and content in art to help their students develop perception and natural expression. Such communication demands special skills. With verbal and nonverbal techniques for communicating art experiences, faculty in this emphasis teach that art is an integrating, energizing and humanizing force in society. They demonstrate that it encompasses real content and real knowledge.
