Bridging the Gap

 Over the Bridge by Justyne Fischer, www.justynefischer.com

As an art supervisor in a large school system, I frequently find myself playing the role of translator between the worlds of art and education. Somehow, despite it’s long-time status as part of a well-rounded education, art is often poorly understood in an educational context, and education is often misunderstood from an art perspective. Communication or mis-communication between art and education lies at the core of many misconceptions and perceived problems… and art teachers exist in the space between.

My highest hope is to bridge this gap.

So artists and art teachers, what can we help the educational institution understand? And what about education do you need explained to you in art terms?

Educators, supervisors, principals, what can we help art teachers understand? And what about the world of art can I help you understand in education terms?

I’m here to help!
