Why choose art education at North Central College?
You’ll develop your own artistic vision and foster the creativity of young people. North Central’s exceptional art education curriculum includes plenty of studio time in our top-notch art facilities. But it also addresses current issues in K-12 education and leads to licensure by the State of Illinois. Because they complete at least 155 pre-residency teaching hours, it’s no surprise that North Central graduates enjoy extremely high teacher placement rates.
You may also:
- Participate in the Senior Art Show, solo or group shows, and in juried exhibitions in the College's dedicated exhibit spaces.
