Addie weaves themes and stories together to show how humans have always been using stories to teach ourselves how to build empathy, persevere, be patient, tolerant, and find inspiration. Check out this podcast and the book (Addie’s website azhirfineart.com). We think you’ll really enjoy it!

Cindy Foley joins the show to talk about the upcoming creative revolution and how and why art teachers should be at the forefront of this shift. Cindy is the Executive Assistant Director and Director of Learning and Experience at the Columbus Museum of Art. You may know her from keynoting the AOE Summer Conference or her fantastic TED talk entitled “Teaching Art or Teaching to Think Like an Artist?”
Some big takeaways from this episode go back to the three big tenets Cindy laid out in her TED talk on how to get students thinking more like an artist and not just going through the prescriptive motions of an art program. Being comfortable with ambiguity, learning how to generate ideas, and delving into trans-disciplinary research... research that truly serves student curiosity.
Learn some great back to school strategies with the one and only Janine Campbell. Janine is a fantastic middle school art teacher in Michigan and a big proponent of TAB and CBAE. She's heavily involved with the Scholastic Arts competition and has presented widely at the state and national conventions. Learn how Janine taps into what she calls the “avoiding the car accident” and how she gets her kids into something fun and messy like clay on the very first day of school.
Many teachers think they have to set the right environment and get everyone on the "same page" that first day. So ditch the boring old syllabus and rules talk and don’t let your class fall into the same old "sit and get" first day.
