the ararte story

"The site Asia Region Art Educators first came about after an energizing art workshop with teachers from all over Asia at the International School of Beijing in 2008. The participants wanted the conversations and sharing of ideas to continue. ISB art teacher Kendra Farrell took advantage of burgeoning digital technology and the then free ning host and created the ARARTE ning. We're upgrading to a new platform, even more relevant in this dynamic 21st century, to assure that Ararte will continue to be one of the go to places for creative art educators to collaborate, inspire and share no matter where they are in the world."

It seems that many teachers are interested in integrating the 8 Studio Habits into their programs these days. This video explains the habits to students and shows them how they might incorporate them into their practice.
