VTS in the Newsby Hawley Hussey
from From Studio to Classroom
BRIC Contemporary Art Educators gather to examine student work at our end of year exhibition INVENT/ONSITE.
We always have an "outside eye" guide us through our search for the
evidence of the learning from our public school residency work. In this
way individual voices illuminate the mysterious process of art in
education residencies with contemporary artists, classroom teachers and
students. In this photo Amy Chase Gulden, the New York Regional
Director of VTS (Visual Thinking Strategies) asks us "What do we notice
or see in this student work?"
There is a unique language and energy shared by students, art
educators, artists, classroom teachers, Teaching artists, or as we
refer to ourselves at BRIC Contemporary Art: Artist Teachers. There is
a visual and conceptual language inside us and when it is deeply
activated it creates energy like our favorite meal or like a walk in a
sacred location. We are nourished by the opportunity to share ideas
about our teaching and our art practice. We begin, middle and end our
school year with inspired gatherings for our faculty and extended
community. Wherever and whenever we can, we gather to eat, drink, make
art, discuss our methods in our studios, in our work place and in the
classrooms. Our shared delight in this practice is brought to each and
every one of our school partners. We have found this to be true: when
you create excellent and inspired gatherings for your various teams you
nurture each individual to take risks and to deepen their investment in
the collaborative process.
