The Work of Teaching Artists

Sydney Opera House via Kadenze


This course has been designed by the longstanding and expert team of teaching artists and staff at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, considered by many to be the birthplace of teaching artistry. In this course - The Work of Teaching Artists - Lincoln Center Education (LCE) will guide you through their systematic approach to arts education, demonstrating the skills needed for teaching artists to activate the artistry of others. You will be introduced to LCE’s seven “Purpose Threads,” which provide a framework for understanding the teaching artist field, and experience a step-by-step approach to the “Work of Art Thread,” based on LCE’s more than 40-year history in aesthetic education. Throughout the course, you will view and practice a range of facilitation strategies and learn about a planning process that is applicable in a variety of educational settings.
