An Opening Reception will kick off the display on Tuesday November 25, 2003, from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m outside of the gallery. Mary Hurwitz and Company, the Kekeli African Drum and Dance group and the Fall 2003 Art Education Mask-Making class will perform at the reception at 6:00 p.m.

The graduate program in Art Education is dedicated to increasing the capacity of its graduates to question issues related to teaching, thinking, learning, and producing in and through the arts. Graduate studies are tailored to individual interests and career goals. Whether the objective is to teach in public or private schools or in community settings--such as day care centers, hospitals, welfare agencies, museums, alternative schools, geriatric centers, or vocational rehabilitation centers--the program provides students with the necessary academic and practical experiences to be effective and productive.
The Master of Art Education program offers a sequence of practical, theoretical, and studio-based experiences through which students build their knowledge, skills, and confidence as arts educators. The program also emphasizes professional development and lifelong learning for teachers who already hold teaching certificates in the arts or related fields.
Admission for both the reception and the gallery showing is free. Refreshments will be provided at the reception. For more information, please contact Nicole Johnson by telephone at (508) 991-5578. Parking is available in lots 8 and 9.
