Artist-teacher: A Philosophy for Creating and Teaching
"Is an artist-teacher a mere professional who balances a career--or does the duality of making and teaching art merit a more profound investigation? Rejecting a conventional understanding of the artist-teacher, this book sets out to present a robust history from the classical era to the twenty-first century. Particular pedagogical portraits--featuring George Wallis, Walter Gropius, Johannes Itten, Victor Pashmore, Richard Hamilton, Arthur Wesley Dow, and Hans Hoffmann--illustrate the artist-teacher in various contexts. From Bauhaus to Black Mountain, this book offers a revelation of the complex thinking processes artists utilize when teaching, and a reconciliation of the artistic and educational enterprises as complimentary partners"--P.  of cover.
