The Art Education department prepares students to be skillful, imaginative, and socially engaged artist educators driven by justice and equity.

MassArt was founded on a deep understanding of the important role of art educators in preparing the next generation of leaders, thinkers, and innovators. 

We celebrate our urban context and our historical partnership with the Boston Public Schools. We prioritize justice and equity while emphasizing engaged creative studio practice, social activism, and expansive scholarly work.

We prepare our students to be generous, resourceful, and reflective practitioners who catalyze inclusive, activist learning for all, across educational contexts and environments.

Our expansive approach to art education prepares our students for careers in public schools, museums, galleries and other community spaces. Beth Balliro Director of Graduate Programs, Art Education
