Art Education

The Tyler School of Art and Architecture at Temple University offers undergraduate and graduate pathways to earning art teaching certification in Pennsylvania and becoming a teaching artist and a leader where the arts, education and the community intersect.

Tyler Art Education students have access to the resources of a world-class art school; Temple University, a large, public research university; and Philadelphia’s rich array of schools, museums, galleries and artists, opening up opportunities for artistic growth, research, networking and jobs. Guided by faculty who are committed to urban art education and the power of collaborating with communities, Tyler students don’t just learn how to teach art and grow as artists—they learn how to affect positive change in the communities where they work.
