Art + Design Education Professional Development Club

Art + Design Education Professional Development Club’s mission is to engage, enrich and guide the University of the Arts MA and MAT students into becoming leaders in the field of art education. This will be achieved by participating in workshops, lectures and conferences to stay current in the field.

We believe that communities, cities and countries should not exist without the influence of design and art. This powerful element begins in our communities, universities and schools at an educational level. Therefore, providing art educators with the most current and up-to-date information is vital to art appreciation. Throughout the year, we will strive to raise awareness in the department about our club and raise money for the national and state level conferences.

The Art + Design Education Professional Development Club centralizes communication so information and news is accessible and readily available; we are a resource to the arts world.
