What is a Teaching Artist?

A teaching artist is a practicing professional artist who uses their art form to engage learners, make connections with the world, and support the creation of meaningful arts experiences in a variety of educational and community settings.

What do Teaching Artists Bring?


Teaching artists view the world through the lens of creation, and bring their unique perspective to schools and communities through joyful and unifying arts experiences.


The arts engage learners in a variety of 21st century skills such as creativity, collaboration, communication, and critical thinking.


Engagement in the arts builds empathy, creates connections, and fosters collaborations.


Teaching artists facilitate engaging aesthetic experiences that activate the artistry of participants and provide opportunities for creative problem solving.
