Art Education PK-12 education majors at Viterbo University start with a year-long Freshman Art Foundations experience, or "boot camp", where drawing, design, and art history lessons help build confident artists and teachers. Art education students learn from practicing artists and designers in state-of-the-art studios and digital labs. 


Besides learning artistic techniques on campus, art education majors will spend much of their time in the community and area schools learning and gaining hands-on teaching experience. Art Education PK-12  students begin teaching, as part of the Afterschool Art Workshop for children ages 5–12 then as teaching artists in residence in K–12 schools. These experiences are unique to Viterbo’s art education program.

 With an art education degree from Viterbo University, graduates will be ready to teach artistic techniques and inspire people of all ages.

Learning Outcomes

  •  The teacher understands how learners grow and develop, recognizing that patterns of learning and development vary individually within and across the cognitive, linguistic, social, emotional, and physical areas, and the teacher designs and implements developmentally appropriate and challenging learning experiences.
  • The teacher uses understanding of individual differences and diverse cultures and communities to ensure inclusive learning environments that enable each learner to meet high standards.
  •  The teacher works with others to create environments that support individual and collaborative learning and that encourage positive social interaction, active engagement in learning, and self-motivation.
  • The teacher understands the central concepts, tools of inquiry, and structures of the discipline(s) he or she teaches and creates learning experiences that make these aspects of the discipline accessible and meaningful for learners to assure mastery of the content.
  • The teacher understands how to connect concepts and use differing perspectives to engage learners in critical thinking, creativity, and collaborative problem solving related to authentic local and global issues.
  • The teacher understands and uses multiple methods of assessment to engage learners in their own growth, to monitor learner progress, and to guide the teacher’s and learner’s decision making.
  • The teacher plans instruction that supports every student in meeting rigorous learning goals by drawing upon knowledge of content areas, curriculum, cross-disciplinary skills, and pedagogy, as well as knowledge of learners and the community context.
