Brush with Knowledge is a podcast for anyone passionate about art and education. Each episode, we delve into the world of teaching artists to uncover how they use their creativity to inspire and educate students of all ages. From classroom techniques to personal stories of inspiration, we explore the power of art to transform education and change lives. Join us on this journey of discovery, and unlock the potential of your own creativity.

Teaching artistry combines artistic skills and teaching abilities to inspire, educate, and empower people. Teaching artists are experts in their artistic disciplines who can share their knowledge with students of all backgrounds and abilities through a creative lens.

Teaching artists use fun and imaginative ways to teach, helping students develop their own artistic talents, problem-solving skills, and self-expression. This leads to personal growth and a deeper understanding of the world around us.

Teaching artistry goes beyond the classroom, working with communities, partnering with other fields, and using art to spark positive change. At its core, teaching artistry values artistic exploration and personal development as essential parts of a well-rounded education.
