Teaching as Art is a class about pedagogy, artist run schools and social practice art. The class has been offered as a graduate level course offered at NYU ITP in 2019, 2018, 2017 and a day long workshop at the Eyeo Festival.

Professor: Taeyoon Choi

with assistance from: Shira Feldman

This class is for artists and creative technologists who want to teach. A good teacher is also a great student themself. They transform their curiosity into knowledge and share their learning processes with others. One can learn to become a better teacher by staying fearless about ‘not knowing’ something, embracing radically open ideas and connecting various expertise and knowledge. Teaching can be a form of artistic and creative practice in collaboration with a diverse community. Teachers can invent new forms of learning spaces, new kinds of collaboration and new senses of community.
