Learning to Stretch

Sometimes, Teaching Artists have to take a multi-disciplinary approach to the work; moving beyond a specific expertise. It can be challenging. For instance, a playwright working as teaching artist might find the need arises to weave music, dance, or even visual art skills and concepts into a residency.

TAs who are looking to advance their knowledge and understanding of the visual arts, might be interested to know that the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) offers a slew of art history courses, many of which are sold out.

Among the courses still open for registration:
