Art education program faculty members are internationally and nationally recognized for their expertise and artwork. They are renowned practicing artists with solo and group exhibitions around the world. Their current work and research focuses on mixed media painting and collage.
National Art Education Association, University of Idaho Student Chapter: Students regularly present workshops at the Idaho Art Education Annual Conference and attend the national conference. Members sponsor a variety of workshops for the local community and the university.
Focused Studio Work: Studio experiences are at the core of the Master of Arts in Teaching, Art program. You will fulfill the required studio coursework at an institution of higher learning near where you live or attend special summer sessions at the University of Idaho. You also have the option to take directed studies online and post your studio progress on your art web site for faculty critique.
Non-Research Thesis: Every degree candidate will prepare a non-research thesis in an area of studio art that is of specific interest to you. You’ll have the opportunity to create a body of new work, exhibit it in your hometown or on campus, and write an accompanying paper (technically not a thesis) that describes your research, artwork, exhibition and the implications for improving your future teaching. Recent graduates have completed theses in painting, book illustration, collage, small sculpture and printmaking.
