Teaching with Contemporary Art Turns Four

No sooner are we celebrating our upcoming fourth year with Art21 Educators as I am reminded that the Teaching with Contemporary Art column also turns four this week. Looks like I’ll be playing the fourth horse in the fourth race this weekend. Last year I celebrated by looking back over the first three years but today I’d like to just look back over the past twelve months because it’s been quite a ride. Here are some highlights since last spring.
