ARTIST'S RESOURCE LIBRARY
Two new publications are available at the Morris Graves Museum of Art Artist Resource Library located in the Youth Classroom: The “Teaching Artist Journal, V6 No2,” and “Business of Art: An Artist’s Guide to Profitable Self-Employment”.
• Teaching Artist Journal
The Teaching Artist Journal is a quarterly editorial project of the Center for Arts Policy at Columbia College, Chicago. It provides an authoritative, timely, ongoing professional development resource for teaching artists. Teaching artists –professionals with skills in both teaching and the arts– have uniquely powerful perspectives, practices, and skills. They make significant contributions and are a crucial resource to arts-in-education programs, arts education and general education, and to the future of the arts as a whole. TAJ is the only professional forum for their learning and development in print.
The mission of the Teaching Artist Journal is to support teaching artistry by advancing the practice of teaching artists. It increases their understanding of the background, contexts, and potentials of their work. It expands the recognition, appreciation, and support of their contributions. TAJ also enhances collaboration between teaching artists and classroom teachers, school arts specialists and other arts providers. It develops a sense of identity and purpose, fosters common language and illuminates research in the field. TAJ is broad, jargon-free, and direct. TAJ is an imaginative and heartfelt peer-reviewed publication addressing the fullest range of practice, research, theory, opinion, and issues related to teaching artists. It speaks to a wide representation of artistic disciplines, diverse educational approaches, and cultural contexts.
