Theory Loves Practice
A Metropolitan State University sponsored research group, Theory Loves Practice brings art educators together monthly to cultivate contemporary arts practices in our classrooms.
This winter we are designing individual research questions, documenting, reflecting and illuminating our findings through beautiful installations. We aim to offer superior arts education to our students and to contribute to academic theory in the field of arts education.

This partnership with the Colorado Art Educators Association is a correspondence art project to challenging assumptions about teaching and learning in the arts.
Questions about this program may be directed to the Creative Director or to the Education Director.
