Art Education

Art education has the power to change people. It opens doors, teaching others to think visually and create art that has personal meaning.

Emmanuel College will prepare, fulfill and enrich you as you learn how to open these doors for others. Study the history and philosophical foundations of teaching and learning through the Education Department, and then hone your creativity as you explore new mediums in the Art Department. Our program also provides opportunities for field-based experiences in urban school settings.
