Curriculum As Creative Practice

December 4, 2012


Artists and educators Rachel Harper, Avi Lessing, and Jason Lukasik approach the design of curriculum as a creative endeavor with direct parallels to contemporary art. If curriculum is a design for ordering experience, how do contemporary curricularists approach this in a living classroom? How do contemporary art forms help us reach beyond teaching with art and towards a deepened understanding of the art of our own teaching? What happens when the theoretical ideal of the “art of teaching” comes into conflict with the constraints of real classroom life?
