Art educators help students of all ages appreciate and create visual art in classrooms and community centres. As a student artist, you’ll choose from a comprehensive list of artistic disciplines and find faculty to foster your talent no matter what your interests. Our media labs and production studios, amongst the best in Canada, give you the tools to realize your vision. As a student teacher, you’ll have internships in community art programs and schools. Then, halfway through your degree, you can apply to the specialization program that leads to provincial certification.
Through our holistic approach, attending small classes, receiving lots of personal attention, you’ll grow as a person, educator and artist. With solid training in artistic and teaching practices, you’ll be well-equipped to do everything from planning high school classes to developing community art programs, even developing effective and educational visits to fine arts museums. You’ll have a strong grounding in your own artistic practice, too, thanks to broad-based and intensive study.
