Photo Blog – Teaching Artist Meet-Up: Sip & Create

This November, the NYC Arts in Education Roundtable’s Teaching Artist Affairs Committee & Community-Word Project’s Teaching Artist Project hosted a joint salon for Teaching Artists around NYC. Over 40 teaching artists attended the event! Musician Michael Morales led us in an opening community activity that had us experimenting with egg shakers, drums, triangles, and other musical instruments to create something uniquely collaborative. After that, attendees had the opportunity to mingle, snack, and create individual and collaborative artworks to share, including visual and creative writing pieces. We finished the night with a fantastic and energetic open mic portion, where participants were able to share work they created during the event and in their individual artistic lives. It was truly a special evening that allowed us to put aside our teacher selves and celebrate one another as artists. We rarely get to do that in our day-to-day teaching artist lives, so it was a very special evening where we could all unwind, make art, and be in a supportive community.”
