MA Art Education

I have been awarded my BFA in Art Education and my MA in Art Education with an Emphasis on Special Populations from Moore College of Art & Design. During my time at Moore I have learned to think critically, reflect and learn in new ways and my education has provided me with the skills and knowledge I need to stand out as professional in my field.

Through the Masters program I was taught to look at things differently and had many experiences that helped me as an educator understand how students with special needs see and experience the classroom. This experience has greatly impacted the way I teach all students. If you choose to come to Moore you will not doubt it, you will grow in so many ways. 

Becoming an art teacher is something that is very rewarding and challenging. I have always wanted to work with students to help them develop their creative talents. I had a great art teacher in both grade school and high school and she recommended that I check out Moore. 

Moore was exactly what I was looking for. There is a great community atmosphere here compared to other large campuses where students are one out of 1,000 who never meet each other. I enjoyed seeing the same friendly faces and loved meeting new people. The small size of the school made my education much more personal and has impacted the way I think when teaching.
