The NYU program in Educational Theatre (where I got my MA) has a blog called Revue. Periodically they ask for alumni to give their thoughts on working in the field, which I did.
As I continue to explore being a teaching artist, I find myself more interested in developing students as people, not just as artists.
Some questions since I wrote the piece:
- What do other teaching artists seek to inspire in their students?
- What skills are the arts most prepared to teach?
- How can we better cultivate the best in our society through our work?
Please comment with your thoughts!
