New Times for Teaching Artists

"Do professions have lifecycle patterns? We know they get born and get old,like app design and television repair. If so, we can say that teaching artistry, still a young profession, is having a growth spurt. New energy is arising from the grassroots; new support structures are emerging; new employment is appearing; and new connections are being made that extend its reach."

Read Eric Booth's article, "New Times for TAs: A Growth Spurt for Teaching Artistry," just published in our latest issue of GuildNotes. The article describes several projects underway that are making a lasting contribution to the advancement of teaching artistry as a field, provides valuable resources, and shares exciting news about new opportunities for training, employment, and global connections. 

Booth will be facilitating the teaching artist development track at the Guild's upcoming Conference for Community Arts Education, Nov. 19 -22, in Los Angeles. Onsite registration opens Nov. 19 at the Westin Bonaventure.
