What You’ll Learn in the M.A. in Studio Practice for Art Educators (Hybrid)
The M.A. in Studio Practice for Art Educators (Hybrid) prepares experienced artists and art educators to further develop their professional practice in creating and exhibiting art. The program also provides opportunities for students to further shape their philosophies as educators, as well as refine their approach to educating others at the forefront of visual art practice and teaching.
Our students have access to the expert faculty and the unparalleled resources of Teachers College, Columbia University. The cohort-based program immerses them in an artistic community, giving them access to valuable feedback that is helpful in improving as artists. Time spent at the residencies with classmates and teachers, and throughout the online portion, creates bonds and experiences that will last long after the program.
This program is different in its almost complete studio focus, designed for educators. One thing that is both a literal representation of that, and a symbolic one, is the culminating project. Instead of being a paper based on your research, the capstone project is an exhibition of your artwork.
