About the Program

Teaching: Art Education (K-12)

The Teaching: Art Education program prepares students for Pennsylvania certification to teach children in kindergarten through twelfth grade in public and private schools.

Building on Keystone's strong visual arts program, students pursuing art education will be prepared to engage in instructional planning and preparation, establish classroom environments, utilize effective classroom adaptations for diverse children and adolescents, and demonstrate professionalism as educators and artists.

In order to be accepted into any of our art programs students must complete a an Art Portfolio Review.
