Art Education

The Art Education area serves and celebrates the community that surrounds it. Its programs send talented teachers into neighborhood schools, enliven the visual landscape with inspiring public artwork and enrich the cultural climate of the city by sponsoring multi-media and performing arts collaborations.

Teaching certification coursework prepares students to qualify for the PA Teaching Certification in Art for grades K–12. The program accomplishes this through combining a rigorous course of study in studio art, art history, art education, education and Temple’s General Education curriculum, with field placements in Philadelphia schools at all grade levels, which allows students to pinpoint their interests and teaching capabilities.
