Are you an artist? Are you eager to share your artistic skills and knowledge with others?

Marywood's Art Education Program can make this possible. It's a program designed to provide practical experience observing and teaching in a variety of K-12 settings.

Our program focuses on the artistic and psychological development of children and introducing them to the fine arts, art history, criticism, and aesthetics. We place a strong emphasis on multiculturalism, integration, and diversity. Courses explore curriculum development, lesson planning, assessment, classroom management, technology, and arts advocacy.
