The Center for Art Education

The Center for Art Education is the administrative umbrella for a number of programs that provide pre-professional preparation for artist-teachers and community artists as well as professional development graduate programs and institutes for artists, educators, and community arts professionals.

Our Philosophy

As a professional school of art, MICA has provided a rich context for the development of programs related to art education. The Center offers a supportive educational community committed to learning that is deep, integrative, and transformational. Our vision encompasses a broad set of purposes for meaningful engagement with art. Our pedagogy is learner-centered, firmly grounded in studio practice, and issues-based with a particular interest in cross-disciplinary inquiry and issues of social justice. Many of our efforts have a focus on teaching and learning in urban contexts.
