Coordinator - Please contact Assistant Professor Anthony Holmquist or Director of Teacher Education.

The Art K-12 Teaching option is designed to prepare students to become Colorado licensed K-12 art teachers. This option recognizes that students need to have a broad knowledge of art-making skills and techniques as well as an understanding of art teaching methods and concepts. Because of the specific and diverse demands of the Art K-12 Teaching option, careful planning is extremely important. Students choosing this option should consult with the Art Education Advisor as early as possible in their college careers and should read the Teacher Education Licensure Program  section, for the steps and requirements for applying to the Teacher Education Licensure Program and requirements for completing the program.

Using these courses to meet both major and Gen Ed requirements enables the student to complete within the 126-credit limit.
