This exhibition explores the work of artists who also work as art educators and their various sources of inspiration. While teaching full-time, part-time or freelancing, the experience of teaching or leading through education positions individuals to share concepts and skills. Pedagogical studies often provide information on how an education lead by a practicing artist can be of positive influence to an art student.
This exhibition will raise questions such as how a professional artist is impacted by their student’s work, as well as how a student’s work filters into the artist’s professional practice.
