What is Art Ed?

As I gear up for my Art21 Educators Institute, I was asked to reflect on what the current trends are in art education and how I see this impacting how and what I teach. I used Wordle as a prompt for my analysis. What would you add?


  1. Not sure how to simplify it . . . honor the past (art history) but create for our future (create new art, explore new ideas)

    Also you might consider, wired (in the technology sense), connected, and authentic.

  2. Great idea! Was this wordle based on info from your blog or a list of words you put in?
    I like that you have multiple intelligence in there:) I would add visual literacy.

  3. Thank you for your comments! Yes! Art Ed IS cerebral, wired, connected, authentic and about visual literacy! Honoring works of others (past) and celebrating new ideas...
    I posted the words based on my own brainstorming session--reading through material I created for workshops etc.

    Please feel free to add to our list and comments...
