Art Instructor


Description

Artists are certainly talented, but without a little guidance, it is doubtful they would get very far. Most artists have some sort of instruction. They read books, study paintings, work alongside established artists and take courses, classes and programs in art techniques and art history through public school, university and beyond.

Art instructors are available for all sorts of students, at all levels. Some art instructors work in the school system, encouraging high school students, while others work in colleges and universities, inspiring and instructing aspiring artists. Art instructors also teach outside the regular education systems, finding work in private art institutions, or set themselves up as private art instructors. These instructors may teach from home, or give lessons at local community centers, or else they may rent a studio for the purposes of their classes.

Because art instructors teach all levels, and in many art forms, to be a successful instructor they should be able to work with children, adults, amateurs and professionals. Art instructors need to be able to work in a variety of media, including metalsmithing, sculpture, oil paint, collage, and computers. While they do not have to be experts in every field, a knowledge of the history, techniques and evolution of each art form helps the students learn.

Art instructors are important to artists. They are often artists themselves, with varying levels of success, who want to share their passion and knowledge with eager and talented students. They are patient and understanding, and often work with students who show very little promise. But instead of discouraging that student, a caring art instructor understands that not everyone wants to be famous, many students are only looking for a method of expressing themselves. An art instructor will encourage that student's passion and emotions to ignite the artwork, resulting in a powerful, touching piece. The art instructor who can get brilliant results like that from an amateur is truly a wonderful and inspirational teacher.
