Traditional artists engage in teaching in many settings, including through apprenticeships, classroom residencies, festivals, their private studios or homes, and museum demonstrations. To deepen teaching strategies, including the relationship of goals, instruction, and assessment, this workshop focuses on folk arts education for teaching artists and folk artists who work in a variety of settings. Local teaching artists have been invited from a local nonprofit education organization with an artist roster to join AFS attendees in this very hands-on professional development opportunity.
