Summer 2021 TAEA Book Study


We are launching the new studies for the summer 2021 with our new chair, Blair Phelps-McCook. She will do an amazing job!

For the first book study this summer, we are finishing up with Creative Block: Get Unstuck, Discover New Ideas, Advice and Projects from 50 Successful Artists, by Danielle Krysa. This study ran from June 1 to June 29. You may know her as @thejealouscurator on Instagram! If you search for it, you will find a pdf version available via Scribd, if you are a member.  Additionally, it is available online via Amazon and other booksellers.




Learning by Heart: Teachings to Free the Creative Spirit

Our second book for the summer will be Learning by Heart: Teachings to Free the Creative Spirit, by Corita Kent. It will run July 20 - August 17. This book study is going to be broken into 4 weeks of discussion questions and an assignment for each week, earning 6-10 professional development hours. You may sign up below until July 27.

Both books will be wonderful sources of inspiration for us as artists and as art teachers.
