Art is a great teacher — revealing patterns in life, providing a medium of self-discovery, and fostering opportunities to make meaning and envision possibilities. We offer a bachelor degree in Art Education at Nazareth College. 


At Nazareth College we offer a bachelor degree in Art Education. The teaching of art is also an art form — allowing teacher and learner to co-construct their understanding in visual and embodied ways. 

Art education is a creative process where the tools of knowledge and experience are used to facilitate opportunities for interaction between teacher, student, curriculum, and world.


  • This NYS Initial Certification program (Pre-K through grade 12) prepares artists to become teachers through fieldwork in surrounding area school districts.
  • You will complete 100 hours of clinical experiences before student teaching, gradually progressing from observation to teaching and benefiting from 1:1 feedback and problem-solving discussions. Fieldwork sites include the Saturday Art School community art program on campus and local elementary and middle/high schools.
