This exhibition emphasizes that art educators are not only teachers, but also practicing artists. After a long day of teaching, it can be a challenge for teachers to create their own art in their free time.

TRAHC encourages art educators to continue to explore and discover their focus, and dual identity as artist and teacher by maintaining an active arts practice throughout their career. Integrating the arts more deeply into these art educators’ daily lives has made them better teachers.

This exhibition showcases the work of art educators who are currently teaching K-12 art in local public schools.

The exhibit displays art created using a variety of mediums, including but not limited to photography, watercolor, acrylic, assemblage, printmaking and sculpture. While each teacher has a different style and message, they become better instructors when their students observe them practicing the same techniques they teach and continuously improving their craft. Knowing their teachers are passionate artists helps to form students attitudes toward art, art making and how to incorporate art into their lives.

Teachers want students to learn how to embrace their creative side and be surrounded by art they love. Art is expressive visually and full of personal ideas and thoughts. Teachers hope to nurture the precious resources of their student’s imaginations. Art helps students assimilate experiences, memories and feelings in an authentic and meaningful way. Art enables children to express themselves through a visual form of storytelling.

This Exhibit is made possible by contributions from TRAHC Members.
