Four Questions
Hark-Weber, Amara G., Ed.
Teaching Artist Journal, v11 n1 p46-54 2013
The author is pleased to introduce a new section in "TAJ," Four Questions. The structure is simple: four questions are asked to teaching artists working in various media and locations. The questions are always the same, but because each teaching artist's approach is unique, their answers will provide an insight into particular methodologies that work, and projects one can learn from. The first two artists presented in this section--Nirmala Rajasekar and Kate Bowen--have very different practices as both artists and teaching artists. Nirmala brings Indian culture and traditional musical practice into classrooms around the United States. Kate is working with Chicago youth to help them bring their own unique voices as photographers into the larger culture. Each of these two teaching artists embodies a particular and considered approach to the work. The four questions asked to them are the following: (1) What do you teach?; (2) How do you teach it?; (3) How do you know if your teaching is "working"?; and (4) Why do you teach?
