NYU Steinhardt’s programs in Art Education offer a unique opportunity to consider the arts and education through the lenses of contemporary artistic practice, social activism, and critical pedagogy. Located in downtown New York City, the program takes advantage of the incredible cultural resources of the East Village, Chelsea, and greater metropolitan area.
