The Department Art, Art History, and Design Saturday Morning Art (SmART) program is part of the Art Education degree program, which affords pre-service Art Education Majors the opportunity to interact and work with school-age children. The creative program serves to broaden and enrich the art and educational experiences of all involved and is designed to expand SmART participants’ artistic and problem solving skills, as well as their aesthetic and cultural awareness and sensitivity.
SmART offers courses for students age 8 through 14 that culminate in an exhibition day to celebrate the artistic creations of the students. SmART is offered in Fall, Spring, and Summer semesters in the Kresge Art Center.
