Art teachers are professional artists who teach and integrate their art form, perspectives, and skills into a variety of settings. They are also known as artist educators or community artists. Teaching artists work in schools, after-school programs, community organizations, prisons, jails, and social service organizations.
Art educators are enthusiastic about art education. They are the ones who attend state and national conferences, and AOE conferences, and use social media to share their students’ accomplishments. They devote an extraordinary amount of time and energy to their profession, as we all know that it takes extensively long hours for them to complete a piece of art efficiently. They are extremely creative people as they can come up with the most ‘beyond-the-imagination’ ideas and they are also very organized planners. Art teachers are extremely hard-working when it comes to their students. They sit with utmost patience till the time their student hasn’t successfully completed a piece of art. They are almost like advocates for the arts as they make sure that the knowledge they retain in this particular area gets passed on to the rest of the world.
Lastly. They are extremely inspirational as they not only inspire their students and audience but also their friends and colleagues, in other words, anybody who is around them.
