Randall HallThe Visual Art Teaching program at Central Washington University embraces disciplined-based art education, a comprehensive approach to teaching art. Disciplined-based art education stresses the history, aesthetics, criticism, and production of art. In addition to these four components, visual culture, creativity, and technology are also included in the visual art teacher preparation curriculum. The program provides students with strong backgrounds of study in art education, art history, and studio art courses.
