The art education faculty invite all who are interested in learning more about the new Master of Arts in Art Education to a virtual information session Dec. 7 at 6 p.m.
This new program will be the first graduate-level art education program offered in the state of Arkansas and will launch fall 2022.
The Master of Arts degree program is a two-year residency and seeks to attract artist educators, teaching artists and museum educators working in schools, museums and the community.
Thanks to a generous gift from the Walton Family Charitable Support Foundation in 2017, all graduate students accepted into the program will receive funding support during the two years of study.
Individuals interested in applying are encouraged to submit their applications by the Jan. 15, 2022, priority deadline.

The School of Art is pleased to welcome Kameelah Janan Rasheed to the Visiting Lecture Series, Thursday, Dec. 2 at 5:30 p.m.
A learner, Rasheed’s work grapples with the poetics, politics, and pleasures of the unfinished. Engaging primarily with text, Rasheed works on the page, within digital interfaces, on walls, and in public spaces. Rasheed creates ecosystems of iterative and provisional projects. These projects include sprawling, “architecturally-scaled” xerox-based collages; large-scale public installations; publications; prints; digital archives; lecture-performances; library interventions; performance scores; poems/poetic gestures; and other forms yet to be determined.
She is invested in Black storytelling technologies that invite us to consider ways of [un]learning that are interdisciplinary, interspecies, and interstellar. Because not all stories are for everyone, Rasheed’s work considers Black storytelling technologies in relation to the surveillance states, or how we tell stories that consider interiority, lenticularity (or varying modes of visibility and legibility), revision, and syncretism.
Please join us Thursday, Dec. 2 to welcome and learn from Kameelah Janan Rasheed.
