MSU-Northern's minor in Art Education introduces the methodologies and philosophies behind teaching elementary art and secondary art. With a focus on hands-on learning and practical application of art for elementary teachers, the program encourages students to translate their studio experiences to the classroom.
Art History and Interpretation – Learn the fundamentals of Western Civilization art history and explore global visual culture.
Hands-on Creative Learning – Get involved in creating art with ceramics, design, and painting classes.
Art in the Classroom – Beyond learning art creation, explore teaching methods and materials so you can engage students in a classroom setting
Adding a minor to your elementary education degree helps you become a well-rounded teaching candidate. Elementary education graduates from MSU-Northern already experience a high placement rate. The Art Education minor opens up more opportunities. You can teach elementary art or add it into your curriculum in a standard classroom setting.
