Teaching Artist Tuesdays

Reading Time:   3 Mins

The NYC Arts in Education Roundtable and its Teaching Artist Affairs Committee seek to support Teaching Artists and arts educators as they navigate this new frontier of arts education with Teaching Artist Tuesdays.

Join us Tuesdays from November 10 thru December 1 for this four-part virtual series dedicated to addressing the realities of a shifting educational landscape and a need for workforce training for teaching artists during the COVID-19 pandemic. Participants will walk away with best practices for recording asynchronous lessons, an expanded virtual teaching literacy, a foundational understanding of grant writing and funding opportunities for freelancers, and a self-marketing toolkit.

This series is free and open to all. Advanced registration is required.

All sessions are 90 minutes.


Documenting & Archiving Student Work for the COVID-19 Era

In this workshop, colleagues Phyllis Yao and Amanda Adams-Louis will demonstrate the workflow and procedures they use to collect, review, organize and archive media files of student work remotely. Instructors will model how they teach their students to capture, edit and submit quality photographs, graphics and videos of their artwork. Afterwards, instructors will demonstrate their process for tracking, sorting and backing up all of their students’ work and workshop documentation. The workflow, structures, processes and classroom rituals presented during this workshop enabled them to seamlessly transition their visual arts residency program from in person to remote learning in March 2020.
