    A Message from the Director
    Art educators who are actively involved in making art, are more engaged teachers.

    Our goal is to assist our students in the development of a unique, active, and integrated studio practice that may be adapted and sustained throughout their professional lives and beyond.

    In todays educational climate, how can we promote and defend the importance of arts education unless we experience it for ourselves?

    Lets get started!
    Keith Benjamin

     

    Flexibility
    To accommodate the schedule of working teachers, MAAE coursework is conducted during 8 week sessions each summer.

    The Summer 2014 session runs from June 9 through August 1.

    The degree requires 33 credits and may be completed in three summers.

    Coursework
    Studio courses are designed to help students develop a studio process that is unique, relevant, and practical giving graduates the tools they will need to sustain their art-making practice after they leave the program.

    Through support, feedback and contemporary examples, faculty assist students in the formulation of a personal philosophy that guides his or her
    art-making process. The program offers studio courses in painting, sculpture, printmaking, digital photography and digital media.

    Art Education Seminars explore current issues in art education. They investigate current theory and practice in K-12 art education, and enable artist/educators to examine, assess, and apply their philosophy on art education theory and practice.

    Art History Coursework focuses on research methodologies as an integral component of studio and classroom practice, and informs students of contemporary trends and issues in art.

    Candidacy Review
    In the second summer, students complete the Advancement to Candidacy review.

    Students must demonstrate the quality of work and proficient progress in the program, along with displaying a selection of studio work, a written
    statement, and present a summary of progress as an artist-educator.

    The presentation is evaluated by a committee of 3 faculty who identify strengths and areas for improvement.
    Students evaluated as proficient are officially advanced to candidacy.

    The Capstone Experience
    In the final summer, students complete a Portfolio Presentation.

    Portfolio presentation consists of:
    • A gallery display of original artwork, (visual component)
    • A written thesis statement of core philosophies and strategies (written component)
    • A verbal/digital presentation that summarizes the visual and written components and provides documentation of classroom practice (oral component)
