Claire Schultz


Prior to joining the UNK faculty in 2017, Claire taught visual arts in public schools in middle Georgia. Earning her PhD in curriculum and instruction in 2017 from Mercer University in Macon, Georgia served as the culmination of her love of teaching and learning. Claire’s dissertation, titled Aesthetics, the Purpose of Education, and the Process of Schooling, focused on education and schooling in the United States in the context of an aesthetic framework. Today, Claire’s research interests include art education, curriculum theory, and aesthetics.
