    external resource from Education Week Teacher, The Power of Visual Notetaking
    notes

    I have been a passionate advocate for visual notetaking in the classroom since I stumbled upon author and designer Mike Rohde’s book, The Sketchnote Handbook, about two years ago. As an elementary art specialist, I saw that, after incorporating the book’s techniques into my classroom, using simple images to synthesize content and demonstrate understanding came naturally to students. Kids learn to draw before they write, and pictures are how they make sense of the world.

    external resource from Artsy, Rocky Mountains, an Artist Residency Is Launching Careers
    CO

    Tucked away in the Rocky Mountains, about 20 minutes from Aspen, sits a thriving, 50-year-old arts community. Anderson Ranch Arts Center was established in 1966 by the ceramist Paul Soldner, who sought to create an alternative to art school. With fellow artists Cherie Hiser, Peter Voulkos, and Sam Maloof, among others, Soldner created a place for artists to learn and refine their skills, to develop new work, and to relish the company of other creatives—a model that has flourished and evolved over the years as the community adapts to the demands of an ever-changing art world.

    external resource from Artsy, What Artists Can Learn from Teaching
    artsy

    Whether it’s critiquing an MFA painting class, giving a museum tour to a group of six graders, or leading a drawing workshop for developmentally disabled adults, working artists are often at the front lines of arts education. Many see teaching as a valuable practice, beyond simply a means of financial support. It may even shape how they approach their art practices. Below, six artists weigh in with the lessons they’ve learned from their work as educators.

    external resource from Artsy, Carrie Mae Weems on a Career of Challenging Power and Black Representation in Art
    Weems

    Since 1978, Weems has spent her career equally tracing and contesting power and the very specific ways it has informed representation, past and present. The artist’s seminal 1990 work of 20 black-and-white photographs titled “The Kitchen Table Series” wrestled with the sustained power dynamics of a black family and friends.
