What is a Teaching Artist?
A teaching artist is a practicing professional artist with the complimentary skills, curiosities and sensibilities of an educator who can effectively engage a wide range of people in learning experiences through the arts. Teaching artists do what they teach. They teach from experience and focus on the process first and the product second.
It is the primary goal of most teaching artists to cultivate artistic identity and the creative intelligence of each student. This grows self-esteem and improves overall health and well being in all individuals.
