Welcome to the Department for Art and Education of the University of Leipzig! The institute is located in the heart of Leipzig’s historical downtown.
We are glad to know that you are interested in studying art education at our institute, be it for teaching in schools or teaching in non school-related areas.
In the courses which familiarize students with the nature of artistic works and processes, insights in the structure and development of artistic production, reception, and reflection are gained.
During the semester there are a lot of projects, events and exhibitions which are often developed and organized by students.
From 16 to 20 June 2014 the students of Leighton Academy got to know one of the most famous German expressionist painter August Macke.
