Eric Booth: "The teaching artist is the expert who brings people from outside the arts, inside the arts."
We continue our Summer School blog series with an introduction to the particular talents and skills of teaching artists. Beginning with explanation from award-winning educator Eric Booth, we get a glimpse of teaching artistry in action as Richard Harris, a recent fellow of The Academy, exemplifies the principles of teaching artistry while working with young jazz musicians at Fordham High School for the Arts.
We'll revisit the principles and practice of teaching artistry in the coming months as the Summer School series continues.
