Many of us are professional artists who create and sell a body of work or many bodies of work - if we are lucky! Our studio practice is well defined and our product is thoughtfully conceived and beautifully executed. As Artists who also Teach, are we giving the same amount of thoughtfulness to the Art and Craft of our Teaching? In this Post Con Workshop, I will partner with the experienced ArtistTeacher to guide them through thinking about ways to deepen their art teaching practice. Ideally, participants are experienced ArtistTeachers who are looking to be guided through a critique of their own teaching methods. Just like critiquing our own artwork, professional ArtistTeachers must also learn to critique their own teaching in order to grow as an ArtistTeacher. Topics to be covered will include: Who are your students? What is your syllabus? Does your target market (students) and your teaching match? What is your philosophy of education? What exactly are you teaching your students and why? What are your goals for your students given your time and space constraints? How do you best meet the needs of your students given your goals and your philosophy? How do you know if your students are meeting your teaching and learning goals? What type of art historical context do you provide and in what way? What type of feedback, critique or critical assessment do you provide your students, how and why? And more! Students will gain critical skills in the deepening of their own teaching practice so that their art teaching is as successful and fulfilling as their art making practice.
