I am an artist and a teacher
A typical day in the life of an art teacher may begin with a general art education class for third graders, and the next hour may involve working with a group of high schoolers to make an animated short film or shoot a movie on an iPhone. But life as an art teacher is not all paint and paper. Here are some duties and activities that art teachers do on a typical day:
Planning class projects and assignments
Ordering and maintaining supplies
Grading assignments and monitoring student achievement
Maintaining classroom discipline
Familiarizing students with well-known artists and art history
Filing administrative paperwork
Attending staff and teacher meetings
Meeting with parents
In a community college or university setting, both full-time and adjunct teachers are usually required to attend meetings, keep office hours and complete other administrative tasks in addition to classroom time.
Work / Education
I am a teacher and artist. I currently work in a school as an art teacher. I have worked in many previous institutions as a fine artist.
