Throughout the curriculum, practice is directly connected to, and supported by, pedagogical theory with an emphasis on reflection and the development of critical thinking skills. The department?s graduates transform art classrooms into studios where students can discover their potential as learners. For more information, visit pratt.edu/academics/art_design.
