As an art teacher, you will have a unique platform to help foster elevated emotional, academic, and social well-being in society. Teaching art to teenagers is a highly rewarding career choice with a variety of employment possibilities. Eastern Washington University’s outstanding art education program strives to produce effective teachers who are working artists. Our BAE students pursue studio concentrations in painting, drawing, printmaking, ceramics, sculpture, inter-media, photography, and/or hybrid practices.
In addition to studying art, Bachelor of Art Education (BAE) students complete the Secondary Education program, which leads to certification to teach grades preschool-12 in the State of Washington.
