Faculty + Staff

Virginia Commonwealth University Art Education faculty members are dedicated and celebrated researchers, teachers, and leaders in the field of art and art education. The work of our faculty is published in dozens of journals, anthologies, books, and professional conference proceedings at the national and international level. In addition, our faculty works to maintain exhibition records of their own art work and also curate exhibitions of other artists. They have terminal degrees in our field and are attuned to cutting edge issues in art education such as exhibition of student art, hypertext and hypermedia, interdisciplinary curriculum and instruction, supervision and assessment, service-learning, drawing strategies and analysis, photography, classroom dialogue, community research and outreach projects, and visual culture studies.
