Art Education - Post-Degree Certification

The ASU Herberger Institute School of Art wants to make your educational journey a successful one. We strongly encourage students pursuing post-baccalaureate certification to work closely with both the advisors for the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts and the advisors for the Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College. This program is one of the few in the Metropolitan area that has a specific art specialist who supervises our certification students.

Pyracantha Press

Pyracantha Press is the independent publishing imprint in the Herberger Institute School of Art at Arizona State University. The Press is directed by Daniel Mayer who has produced inter-disciplinary collaborative works since 1986. Projects created under the Press are limited-edition books and prints that reflect our cultural landscape. Each project is unique and experimental in form and content. Press publications are in over 75 national and international collections such as the Getty, Library of Congress, Yale, among others.

Children's Art Workshop

The Eleanor A. Robb Children’s Art Workshop is unique as a community program that has a mission to serve all of the students throughout the Phoenix area that are interested in learning about art. Art education majors that are interested in becoming teachers or working in the art field teach these children. The workshop is part of the art teaching certification program in the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts and the Mary Lou Fulton College of Education. It is only taught in the fall semester.
