Art is a great way for people of all ages to express their creativity and release pent-up emotions. Drawing, painting and other forms of art allow people to release stress and anxiety and feel more relaxed. Young children can especially benefit from an art education. To teach various forms of art to students in Michigan schools, you will first need to pass the MTTC Visual Arts Education Exam.

You will need a score of at least 220 to pass.
The exam covers four subareas:
- creating visual art
- aesthetic knowledge and critical analysis of art
- art in historical and cultural context
- art education
You will primarily be tested on your knowledge of the tools, processes and material used to create paintings and graphics. You will also need to know about printmaking, photography, sculptures, product design, ceramics, fibers, metalwork, visual art forms, visual arts presentation, artistic processes, visual arts as communication and visual arts in society and community.
The test also covers the effects of gender and culture on art, components of media literacy, theories of art and design, evaluation of art, works of art from around the world, foundations of art education, artistic development in students, developing and implementing an art curriculum, benefits of art education and relationships among the arts.
