About Teaching Artist Podcast

This podcast is dedicated to discussions of teaching art, making art, and how those things overlap and feed each other. Rebecca Potts, a visual arts teaching artist, interviews practicing artists who are also K-12 educators. 

This podcast was born out of a desire to highlight artists who teach kids while maintaining their own studio practice. It dives into how making and looking inform teaching and how teaching informs making. We discuss the nitty gritty details of time management, classroom management, and studio management. What does a day or a week look like for a teaching artist? How does a full-time art teacher fit in their own art-making? How do you work to dismantle systemic racism from your platform as an educator? How did that one student change your art practice? How do you share your life as an artist with students? What lessons and artists have been most impactful? How are you handling teaching during the pandemic?

How can you be involved? My hope is that this becomes more than a podcast. I hope these conversations inspire and encourage other artists who teach. We are serious about art-making and teaching, but managing this dual career can be challenging. Let's lift each other up!

We have an exhibit platform run in collaboration with Curated for Kids. We also have some teaching resources and plan to continue developing more community programming in collaboration with some other amazing art teachers.
