Our Art Education program will equip you with top-notch teaching skills and give you teaching experiences in our Young Artists Workshop, local schools, museums and community arts settings. No matter where you end up, you can apply what you learn to enrich the lives of others. 

“Most of our faculty are still actively involved in their field outside of Moore. A lot of professors are also K-12 art educators, they are therapists, they are researchers, and they are professional artists. I love that we aren’t just teaching from the book here. We are using actual ongoing experience in the field.”
