An Experience Ahead of Its Class

All teachers participate in regular professional development. We believe that art teachers deserve learning opportunities directly related to their content area. We’re lifelong learners! Learning should feel like something you want to do, not something you have to do.

Try an online graduate course with AOEU and see how engaging, relevant, and approachable learning can be.

On Your Schedule, At Your Speed

You are a busy professional, and your time is valuable. Our flexible courses give you access to the materials for the entire course as soon as you enroll. You can complete the coursework as prescribed or work ahead to prepare for those naturally busy times of the school year. We’re here to support you every step of the way, so you can achieve your goals without sacrificing your work-life balance.

Relevant Coursework

Every AOEU course is created by art teachers, taught by art teachers, and attended by art teachers. There’s no need to “make a connection”—everything here has been designed just for you.

Experienced and Passionate Instructors

Good instructors inspire learning and stretch your thinking. AOEU employs instructors with innovative approaches to teaching, incredible interpersonal skills, and proven success in the art room. Since our instructors work remotely, we’re able to attract and employ a variety of awesome art teachers from around the world.

Ultra-Responsive Instructors

You’ve heard stories about classes where the instructor is nowhere to be found… Not here! Our graduate instructors respond to every discussion and will provide value-added feedback on all your assignments. They engage with every class member on a meaningful and personal level.

Attend From Anywhere

If you’re like most art teachers, you’re always on the go. AOEU Courses let you work from anywhere: your desk, your car, from home, or at school. You can use your laptop or tablet; we’ve even had students use a smartphone to submit assignments while on vacation!

Small Class Sizes

As an art teacher, you know how frustrating it can be when your room is overly full and you’re stretched too thin. Our small class sizes allow you to get to know your peers and enjoy the personal engagement from your instructor. You’re more than a number here.

Technology as a Learning Tool

If you’ve never tried online learning, the technology might seem intimidating. But the truth is, it’s no more complicated than attaching a file to your email, browsing the web, or creating a digital presentation. You might become more tech-savvy during your AOEU courses as well!

Incredible Resources

Engaging video content, relevant discussions, and an assortment of instructional tools you can use for years to come.

Thoughtfully Designed Courses
