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.

I am an artist and it is not so easy to learn the necessary skills to facilitate this kind of work (unless one does a masters degree in education, and figures it out themselves!). I did the entire Kadenza course (LCE, Queensland Performing Arts and the Sydney Opera House). Each course had a unique focus (education, working in communities in different settings), and really practical processes that I could immediately apply. The resources were great (lesson plan templates), and there were concrete examples of how to facilitate (e.g conversations and collaboration so all voices are heard).
The platform is super interactive, and I applied the learning to actual projects at the time of doing the course. This got my own creativity flowing, and made me think bigger about what being an artist is. Highly recommend this for artists who want to learn how to facilitate and teach, and teachers who want to be more creative in their classrooms.
