A fun and energetic look at the world of art education.
Ep. 409 - The State of Art Education 2024
Every year, AOEU surveys art teachers from across the country and around the world to capture the current issues, trends, and topics in art education. After data is collected from thousands of art teachers, the annual State of Art Education survey is published in the AOEU Magazine. The 2024 report was published on Friday, and Amanda Heyn and Lindsey McGinnis are on the podcast to discuss the results! Listen as they talk about the most interesting insights from the survey, their own top takeaways, and how teachers everywhere can use the survey to advocate for their art rooms and their programs.

From the Archives: Finding Joy in Teaching This Year
After the NOW Conference and a presentation that highlighted the joys we find in teaching, it is time to revisit this episode from the archives to ask: Are teachers able to find joy in their jobs again? Kandice Stewart joins Tim today to answer that question--and many others--as well as talk about how we can be more intentional in our teaching. Listen as they also discuss creating and working with your students, helping others find joy, and what we gain from being reflective educators.

Love the POD Cast!
I must say this is one of the most enjoyable podcasts I have had the pleasure of listening to. The host Tim Bogatz, weaves his conversations and topics with a wit and charm that one could only expect from a creative mind not only at the forefront of America’s ART culture today, but also leading it to greater heights. Definitely an easy listen, and worth the time for anyone who dreams of being involved In The ARTS, whatever form you choose.
Why does the host sound so salty
I’ve listened to nearly every episode in hopes of gleaning ideas and skills for my classroom, but I have reached a stopping point. The host sounds so burned out. The down trodden tone is a buzz kill. I get it—teaching is hard, but lighten up a little.
Listened to one so far…
I have been an art teacher for only 3 years and just in the first episode related with everything that was said. I feel like the podcast knew what I needed to hear. Everything they brought up I say in class every year. Will keep listening and see where is takes me.
