Art Education Courses

The Art Education courses are  designed for students who wish to pursue professional training as artist-teachers in public and private schools, museums, community-based programs, and other alternative educational sites. The courses offered in the Department expose learners to the challenges of teaching art and design in Secondary and primary Schools. Through various courses, the learners are introduced to the concepts of art and education, and how individuals are able to learn through art with great improvisation of materials and techniques. Students are prepared to be innovative researchers and strong advocates for the arts in schools.

The programs are on a full time basis with continuous studio practice and industrial training. At the end of each semester, an exhibition of all the studio works done during the semester is scheduled and examinations in all programs are conducted. Individual studio research projects are carried out in year two semester two.
