course information

A faculty of working artists and professional designers from Parsons The New School for Design guide educators through intensive studio courses that develop both technical expertise and problem-solving skills. Students draw inspiration from visits to artists' studios, museums, galleries, and the myriad art and design resources of New York City.

The studio portion of the program is complemented by on-site coursework in administration and supervision at Bank Street College of Education during the summer term and distance learning courses during the rest of the academic year.


This program leads to New York State certification in supervision and administration for those who have been teaching preschool, elementary school, or secondary school for at least three years. Those with provisional certification in art education can apply for permanent certification in art education. Graduates of this program hold positions as public and private school principals, regional art supervisors and administrators, teachers, and professional artists and designers.
