Art Education

Student in studio

Through this degree program, students prepare to teach art in the K-12 art class while actively engaging in and contributing to the field of visual art education.

LCU art students make presentations at the Texas Art Education Association Conference and other regional conferences, they exhibit their work at the university and within the community, and they have even published in regional journals. They are engaged in on-site learning through field and travel opportunities, giving back to others through art while they learn.

Join us in a program that works collaboratively with students, empowering them for the art classroom and the rich and diverse field of Art Education.

Imagine a degree program in Art Education that involves you in a variety of Art experiences--from the making of art, to the art theory, to the teaching of art, to contributions to the field through professional conferences. The program in Art Education at LCU does just that: our students engage early on in teaching art to children through field experiences with the Department of Education and through teaching projects with the student art organization. We invite you to find out more about Art Ed at LCU!
