National Museum of Mexican Art
1852 W. 19th St.
Chicago, IL 60608
For over a decade, teaching artists have been an integral part of the National Museum of Mexican Art’s art education team, delicately balancing their artistic careers and their roles as instructors teaching and empowering children to expand their knowledge and express their thinking and creativity through the beautiful language of the arts.
Through this engaging panel discussion, Chicago teaching artists Roxanne De Luca (visual arts), Ignacio Guevara (video, multi-media, theater), Anabel Tapia (dance), Victoria Martinez (silkscreen, fabric arts), and Chema Skandal (illustration, comic art) will share stories and insights of their experience as practicing artists juggling their career as artist and teacher.
Moderated by Nicole Marroquin, Assistant Professor in Art Education of the Art Institute of Chicago and practicing artist, this unique panel will explore the role and impact of the teaching artist in a community program and how teaching and creating art influence each other. Question and answer session will follow. Light refreshments will be served.
