Arts Ed Alum Brittney Leitner shares her experience of our program

Curious about the Arts Education program and wondering where this degree could take you?

Today, we’re shining the spotlight on alum Brittney Leitner (B.Ed.’22), who shares about her experiences in the program and the opportunities that have opened up for her.
Brittney says, “I loved my time in the University of Regina Arts Education program, especially the hands-on, experiential learning in the arts, whether it was learning to play guitar, reading children’s literature with beautiful illustrations, creating with watercolours, doing shadow screen dramas, or social dancing. Beyond simply learning how to teach the arts, we explored how to teach through the arts and with the arts.”

Our arts education program prepared Brittney for a variety of roles in education and beyond. As Brittney says, “The Arts Education program at the University of Regina opens doors for teachers into the classroom, but also opens endless windows into a world of creative professions, learning experiences, and opportunities to explore and grow their love for the arts and teaching.”

The door Brittney chose was to continue her studies: “I am currently pursuing a Master’s of Arts in Art Education at the University of British Columbia with a research focus in embodied inquiry.”
Brittney says, “I will always be grateful for the lasting friendships I made with people who love the arts and teaching, for the professors who guided me to deepen my artistic practice and connect my pedagogy to shaping a better world, and for my personal growth and learning that continues to go with me beyond the program into the endeavours I pursue as an artist, an educator, and a life-long learner.”
