This March, The Art Institutes system of schools will have more than 50 Art Institutes locations in the United States host “What Those Who Teach Can Do,” a national collaboration of gallery shows paying tribute to talented art educators across the country. In Charleston, The Art Institute of Charleston, a branch of The Art Institute of Atlanta, will feature local high school art and media educators' artwork in a month-long exhibition to celebrate their creativity and thank them for positively affecting the lives of so many students.
“We're turning the tables on our educators and focusing on their passions and creativity,” said Charles Restivo, president of The Art Institutes. “The collaboration of galleries is the stage we set to celebrate our teachers' commitment to preparing our area high school students.”
This year will mark The Art Institutes' third celebration highlighting educators' artistic work, commitment and passion. If you're a high school arts and/or media teacher or know of a teacher that may be interested in submitting their work, please visit WhatTeachersCreate.com for information about “What Those Who Teach Can Do” at The Art Institute of Charleston.
Artwork for submission can include but is not limited to painting, mixed media, sculpture, ceramics, audio/video, design, digital media, film, photography, illustration, culinary images and/or fiber arts. There is a limit of one entry per participant, and all art must be exhibition-ready for immediate installation.
Anyone can nominate a teacher to submit their work. Once nominated, the nominee will receive an email notifying them of their nomination along with information on how to submit their artwork. Entries are being accepted, and entry deadlines vary by campus.
