Session 1: Sampling a Teaching Artist Project
The first course covers the kinds of projects teaching artists lead with arts organizations and communities. From considering one signature project we can understand the role of the teaching artist and determine the nature of the work they do.
Session 2: The capable Teaching Artist
This course analyses the ingredients which make up a dynamic and successful teaching artist project. This then allows you to note the broad range of capabilities teaching artists draw on to successfully move from one teaching artist project to the next.
Session 3: Going forward as a Teaching Artist
It is time to take stock by naming the teaching artist capabilities you currently possess and how they may be used in a project of your own making. The course concludes by reflecting on your future professional learning, on identifying the personal capabilities do you need to develop in order to become a successful teaching artist.
