This is a version of a reflective teacher practice I did in my Contemporary Art and Pedagogy class. For this activity
- For this activity, I ask myself or another art teacher to name as many artists as possible in 5 minutes.
- When time is up we take a look at the types of artists and ask
- How many are woman?
- How many are black?
- How many are not white European?
- How many work collaboratively?
- How many are living?
When I did this activity myself I realized my understand of art was largely dead, white, European, and painters. This activity continually shapes my decisions for selecting artists to show to students so that I can make the point that art is made by all people.
