…relevant, helpful, inspiring information to enhance your art teaching. I have never taken classes that I enjoyed or learned more!
I am new to online classes and new to AOE. They are very patient and make you feel comfortable even if you are nervous to venture into something new like I did.
I am truly amazed at how these classes are bringing me into an awareness of what’s going on in art education. I have taught many years and this opportunity is the best!

Q. Will these classes be accepted through my graduate program?
A. It depends. The Art of Education courses can be taken for grad credit thanks to our partnership with Morningside College. These credits carry a highly respected 500-level degree accreditation. The Art of Education cannot guarantee credits will be accepted as transfer credit at another institution. It is strongly advised to check with the degree-granting school, your state, and your district to verify the credits will be accepted for license renewal, salary advancement, or for use in a degree program.
Q. What kind of time commitment does an AOE course take?
A. Depending on your own pace, the commitment can vary. We tell students they expect 45 hours of contact time per credit. That includes interacting with your peers, research, reading and completing assignments. So for a two-credit course, that’s 90 hours over 4 weeks, or 22 hours a week. This includes online learning, interactions with peers, and reading/assignments outside of class. It’s challenging, but highly relevant to your art room so our students find it well worth it.
Q. How are courses graded?
A. All participants will be given a letter grade for our courses. This letter grade will be scored based upon the rubrics and requirements in the course syllabus. Morningside College and the Art of Education follow a rigorous academic model to maintain the highest standards and rigor.
