Walking by Hannah Taylor
I am finding that as an Art teacher many assumptions are made about you and what goes on in the classroom; you either spend all you time teaching Photoshop on Mac's and that everything you do is digital or your teaching is described as "Arty Farty" through lack of understanding.
Teaching for an art teacher is really no different to any other subject. As a teacher you:
- Share your enthusiasm to encourage students to be inquisitive, investigate and develop their skills.
- Use examples from history and current culture to make learning relevant to their lives.
- Employ everything in your arsenal of tools, materials and techniques to make teaching and learning possible.
