Teacher certification in art (K-12)

Studio art majors may seek certification to teach art in grades K-12. Required art courses for certification include ART 200, 240, 250, and 585, and ARHI 100 and 102. These courses may be taken in conjunction with or in addition to the studio art major requirements. Additional recommended courses to expand knowledge of media and processes are ART 220, 230, and 270. Students can add an endorsement for a second area (such as English as a second language) by completing the appropriate minor. Students who plan to seek teacher certification should notify their advisor, review the requirements in the Education section of the catalog, and meet with the director of teacher education as soon as possible, preferably before the end of the sophomore year.

Senior Experience in Studio Art

The studio art Senior Experience consists of two separate yet complementary components: ART 600: Senior Seminar (usually offered Term II) and participation in the Senior Exhibition, held annually in the Wriston Galleries near the end of Term III.

Both aspects of the studio art Senior Experience are intended to be a culmination of the practical and conceptual art-making skills developed through the studio art program. Designed to inform one another, both serve to encourage a more refined awareness and understanding of current issues pertinent to contemporary art along with the applied skills and critical thinking processes necessary for success either in graduate school or as a professional visual artist.
