Jessica Balsley founder and President at the Art of Education University.
Several years ago as an art teacher working towards my master’s degree, I began a search for a university with courses designed for art teachers but came up short.
Like so many art teachers, I struggled
to find classes that were relevant, practical, and would actually teach me something valuable to my career as an art educator!
This frustration led to the creation and development of The Art of Education. That year, my husband Derek and I set out on a mission to provide Ridiculously Relevant Professional Development™ to art teachers around the world.
Since that time, and thanks to our loyal students, The Art of Education (AOE) is now The Art of Education University (AOEU), the world’s first fully-accredited graduate university exclusively serving K-12 art teachers like you.
Today, hundreds of thousands of individuals read our online magazine each month while thousands of art teachers attend our conferences and rely on our online graduate classes for license renewal, salary advancement, or to secure a master’s degree.
As art teachers, we all have to stick together. We’re not an afterthought – and we absolutely deserve the highest quality professional development available.
The Art of Education University exists to grow amazing art teachers by providing rigorous, relevant, and engaging learning at every stage of their career.
