While I assume most participants on this list are public school art
teachers, I know (hope?) there are others who teach art in various
alternative settings including community art centers, museums, daycare
centers, and so on. If you teach art in one of these types of
institutions, I'd like to hear from you.

I'm currently exploring the world of art education beyond the traditional
public school classroom. My interest in this topic is not only for
possible publication of an article (and hopefully a book), but more
importantly to raise the awareness of my students who are entering the
field of various "alternative" opportunities that exist "out there in the
real world" for them.

For those interested in responding, I have a few questions.

yes, folks--ANOTHER SURVEY!

You can email your responses to me directly, if you wish. Depending on the
results, I may compile the responses in some way and post them on the
listserv for those interested in this topic.

1. In what type of institution/setting do you "teach art?"

2. How would you characterize your job? (e.g., museum educator, private
teacher, etc.,) What specifically do you do? (e.g., teach 3 art classes
in a community art center)

2. Briefly describe your training and background. (degree, on-the-job
training, related jobs, etc.,)

4. In what ways do you feel your job is similar and different from what a
public school art teacher does?

5. What benefits and challenges do you feel are unique to your job?

6. Any advise for others who might be interested in doing what you do?

Thanks in advance for any replies.
