Editorial Reviews

Review

"The essays take us through the earliest origins of the Artist Teacher, the informal training of the artists' workshops of the Classical era and the creation of the Guilds, before moving on to the development of artistic recognition during the Renaissance which saw painting move away from craft and begin its metamorphosis into an intellectual discipline. . . . This is an enjoyable book to read either as a whole or to dip in and out of. It actively encourages the view that teachers should continue with their own practice and let it influence their pedagogy."—International Journal of Art & Design Education

(International Journal of Art & Design Education) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The book Artist Teacher by G. James Daichendt is a fantastic insight into the structure of an Artist Teacher. The book goes into details concerning the origin and evolution of the term Artist Teacher bringing forth old ideas and strategies towards teaching the ever changing subject of art. The Artist Teacher book has definitely opened my eyes to the ways that a teacher should approach a student when instructing and has also encouraged me to step it up as a student and grasp whatever I can gain from my art instructors but has also made me realize that a lot of learning art is practice, drive, and heart.
The writing style of the book was very easy to follow as the different eras of art teaching was split into chapters perfectly with explanations at the end. It is clearly evident how much research and study Daichendt poured into this, and in the end, everyone benefits from it.

So I am a Math/Science guy and one thing in this world that I never really understood was Art... I always expected to leave this earth never really understanding why people think a 16th century portrait painted in oil on poplar panel in Florence by Leonardo da Vinci was so admired.

Artist-Teacher really breaks down art in a way that I could start to appreciate it, as understanding art has always escaped me. The book is easy to read, flows well, and is highly educational. Still have a ways to go to really get it, but after reading this book, I feel I am ready to start exploring and appreciating art in a way that I never thought would be possible for me.

Whether you are familiar with the arts or just interested in learning more, Artist-Teacher is an excellent resource examining some of the philosophies and people that have contributed to creating the modern art scene. Daichendt takes a fascinating look at the roles of artists throughout history and explores how their methods have endured to influence modern art education and the commercial art world. This is a wonderful book for any art student, teacher, or historian as well as any novice to the art world seeking a better understanding on this complex subject.

Format: Paperback
The Artist Teacher is an excellent resource that provides a foundation for understanding where and how the artist teacher has come to exist. From this foundation, Daichendt explores the characteristics and potential for an Artist Teacher (apposed to a teacher who teaches art).

As an Artist Teacher myself, this book has encouraged positive growth in furthering my developments of bringing aspects of my artistic practice and research into the the classroom.
