with Teacher Licensure (B.A.)
Teaching a fascination and a capacity for art within children of kindergarten through 12th grade is an admirable profession. The kids are engaged in creativity during these early years and may consider future artistic careers and studies.
Fundamental skills of composition, contrast, color theory, texture, and more are taught within this program at Methodist. More importantly, the methods of teaching these skills to students of many age levels are developed within our graduates. In our Teacher Licensure in Art program, you will learn the ways of creating unique, educational, and exciting projects your own "budding artists" will enjoy. At the same time, courses in drawing, painting, printmaking, and sculpture will encourage your own talents—as you should always be able to "practice what you teach."
