Overview

Art is how we begin to make the invisible visible

The Art Education program of Concordia University Wisconsin prepares future teachers with the knowledge, skills and attitudes needed to teach visually and perceptively. As an art educator, you can share tools such as patience, passion, and critical-thinking which are vital for living a peaceful and joyous life. You’ll learn to guide others as they explore their inner selves, the external world, and the relationships between them.

Art provides the means to give physical form to all of human experience. You will learn the power of using faith as a part of education in both public and parochial settings. You will learn to promote engagement between art and theology, the importance of the spiritual as revealed in art objects, sacred spaces, and in artistic practice, and the connections between visual art and faith. You will learn how art affects the development of children from a physical, mental and spiritual perspective. This program is a licensable subject area major for those seeking a K-12 Education Bachelor's degree.

What to expect

Our experienced faculty will guide you to explore your own skills in the arts and help communicate it effectively and engagingly with others. You will learn both the fundamentals of art and pedagogy. The Art Education Major consists of 95 - 101 credit hours of course work, dependent upon whether the student chooses a public school or Lutheran education focus. In both cases coursework blends studio and education courses to fully prepare students for a rewarding career in art education. Upon successful completion of all coursework, including a semester of student teaching, art education majors earn full licensure by the State of Wisconsin to teach art at the elementary and secondary levels (K-12).
