Teaching Artist Life

Wow.  Somebody is doing a large scale documentation of what we do.

I’m glad.  Many times, when I try to describe what I do, I get a glazed donut look.  Then, if I manage to explain properly, I hear, “That’s cool.  I wanna do that.”  

From what I hear from Dale Davis and Carole Fineberg in my TA 101 class, the Teaching Artist field is expanding and changing at a rapid rate, so articulating what we do, studying the effects of the work and capturing a portrait of where the profession is going nationally is really key.  I also think we need to share best practices and build TA capacity.  And this is a good way of keeping the conversation going.  

I am interested in what this will yield.
