Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) in Art Education

Metropolitan State University of Denver’s Art Education concentration fuses a progressive 21st century approach in the discipline of Art Education with your development as an artist. Within the discipline of Art Education, students focus on generative, authentic, contextualized exploration where inquiry is driven by socially engaged research and contemporary art practices. You will learn how to apply issues and themes poetically, building curriculum to discover the possibilities of what it means to instruct through an idea instead of about an idea. As a future artist-teacher, you will put into practice informed research while working in the K-12 classroom. Combining artistic practice, educational studies, and field experience as an educator, you will be prepared to bring about creative change in the world through the lives of your students.

In addition to the learning outcomes listed for the BFA in Art, instruction in the Art Education degree should prepare students to:

  • Successfully teach in an art classroom applying and testing principles and methods of diverse age appropriate instructional approaches and curriculum development that illustrates respect and professionalism for the field of teaching.
  • Assess aptitudes, experiential backgrounds and interests of individuals and diverse groups of students, and devise learning experiences to meet assessed needs.
  • Develop and present a professional portfolio of work including lesson plans, examples of student work and an art education philosophy statement that demonstrates current best practices in the field.
