Teaching Experience Throughout Your Student Career
At Huntington, student teaching is not the first time art education majors experience leading a classroom. Hands-on, practical experiences are explored throughout numerous semesters. Students are exposed to practicums, practice hours and numerous observations of different grade levels, learning environments and teaching styles.
Huntington students have a very high rate
of passage on state education competency tests. Our NCATE-accredited
program is specifically designed for students who wish to obtain an
Indiana teaching license.
Extensive Art Study
Art education students study a variety of studio areas including drawing, painting and computer graphics, as well as courses in art history, that help them gain skills and discern art styles and periods. Courses in visual arts foundations and methods cover P-12 stages of artistic development, state learning standards and creative project planning.
Huntington University has an active student chapter of the National Art Education Association. This group develops further expertise in art teaching practices through a variety of experiences, including attendance at state conferences, assistance in planning an annual high school art exhibit, teaching private art lessons and community involvement.
