Empowering Teachers to Succeed in the Visual Arts
As an art teacher, Jessica Balsley experienced the challenges faced by many art educators and set out to create solutions. Together with her husband Derek, they founded The Art of Education to provide Ridiculously Relevant Professional Development™ to art teachers around the world.
Over the years, AOEU has grown into the world’s first fully accredited graduate university exclusively serving K–12 art teachers and has been committed to empowering them—and all educators who want to incorporate visual arts into their curriculum—every step of the way. AOEU offers a full spectrum of lifelong learning opportunities, catering to the unique needs of art educators, and strives to be a “University for Life.”
