Show Your Work — stories of arts education in LA
We wanted to learn more about arts education in the Los Angeles area, especially the people teaching it. That’s why we asked current and former teachers how their students and work have shaped their lives: maybe poetry helped bring a shy student into the conversation, or a drawing provided insight into a student’s emotional struggles.
We asked, and you answered.
On Saturday, March 9 at 11am in KPCC’s Crawford Family Forum in Pasadena, arts education reporter Carla Javier hosted an event featuring current and former art teachers and teaching artists from around Southern California sharing their stories of using the arts to connect with their students. They discussed with Carla how they see their roles in their schools and their communities —and the highs and lows they experience doing their jobs.
