Notes from the Field: Bartol TA Ambassadors
How do you build a field? At the Bartol Foundation, we are part of a national conversation on the best ways to build the field of teaching artistry. Last November, we brought 8 teaching artists with us to attend the National Conference on Community Arts Education. Here are Bartol TA Ambassadors with TA guru Eric Booth: Jacob Winterstein (poet); Josh Robinson (musician); Monay Washington (visual artist); Beth Feldman Brandt (Bartol/poet); Dana Velazquez (visual artist), Jan Michener (theatre artist): Greg Corbin (poet); Eric Booth; Belle Alvarez (dancer); and Gabrielle Sanchez (theatre artist). A fine looking group! Each of them participated in planning session to generate a national movement to build and support teaching artists. They will be writing in this space from time to time with their updates. Stay tuned!
