VISUAL ARTIST’S WORKBOOK
Essays and exercises on teaching arts
Denise Ziegler and Pilvi Porkola (eds.)
How do artist-teachers teach? What are the exercises and practices on which artist-teachers base their teaching? Is there something they would like to share with their colleagues? Visual Artist’s Workbook – Essays and Exercises on Teaching Arts collects the experiences and reflections of teachers and the practical exercises they use in teaching fine arts. The aim is to consider the practices that are relevant to teaching fine arts and to reveal their multiplicity. The book includes four essays written by artist-teachers, and the main part of the volume consists of short tasks written by forty artist-teachers.
The book’s objective is to inspire anyone interested in the methodology of visual arts and pedagogy-based thinking. It introduces an augmented understanding of artistic thinking in the field of visual arts.
