TAEA 2020 Book Study

Fall 2020 TAEA Book Study


Image to Word: Art and Creative Writing by Kathleen Walsh-Piper
November 9 - December 13, 2020

We are thrilled to launch the fifth and final book study of 2020 with Image to Word: Art and Creative Writing, written by Kathleen Walsh-Piper. This book has been widely celebrated for engaging viewers of art in exploring creative writing as a way to express ideas about a variety of works. We will be learning and discussing with Emily Cayton, art museum educator extraordinaire, whose enthusiasm for learning through art inspires children and adults alike, as our co-moderator.

We start November 9th!

With this book, we have explored a variety of options to access the content. As always, we want to explore ideas that are directly applicable to our art classrooms and museum contexts. Therefore, we encourage everyone who is interested in this book study to take a look at the e-textbook option for accessing the book. While it is available on Amazon, as a Kindle option (which can be accessed through the Kindle app on iPhone or iPad), VitalSource has it as a rental e-textbook for less.

We will be offering flexible response times for this book study as well, understanding that you will each be accessing the study at times that are convenient for you! We look forward to offering one or more Zoom meet-ups, perhaps one with the author, who has retired from her role as a museum educator.

Looking ahead to 2021 — we look forward to hearing from you about topics or specific books that you are interested in investigating! Watch for the survey in January!


We encourage you to look for the titles now at online booksellers (Amazon, Etsy, Half-Price Books, for example) or at your local bookseller. We also encourage you to discuss this PD opportunity with your supervisor or principal, as they may elect to fund the purchase of the books on your behalf.

If you have any questions, please contact .
