Becoming a Teaching Artist Infographic
Today I am thrilled to share two graphics that I have wanted to develop for years. Thank you to dancer and graphic designer Jai Arun Ravine for helping me finalize the ideas this week! A thank you also goes out to San Francisco Bay Area teaching artists Maurice Charriere, Patricia West, Juliana Monin, Valerie Gutwirth, Emily Miller, and Laura Marlin for their feedback.
Here is an infographic and a graphic organizer related to the topic of "becoming a teaching artist." What are the skills, resources, and connections you will want to build? There are so many aspects to growing as a teaching artist to thoroughly and thoughtfully develop curriculum, relationships, and your teaching practice.
The graphic organizer is a PDF with blank spaces to write down your own ideas and questions. Use the documents yourself or use within a college arts education course.
There are 13 ideas presented here, which may feel like a lot. But as a field that lacks training, especially multiple courses as part of BFA programs, we have a lot to learn, see, and experience to become ready to head into a classroom or studio.
One step at a time.....one topic at a time. Here's to a great school year ahead!
