Today, art schools also educate our art teachers. Ann Saelens and Tanja Oostvogels, both theatre teachers and actors, are conducting research together at the KASK & Conservatory (HOGENT) on the role of the theatre teacher in helping young adults learn to create their own stage work. They are struck by how the artist/teacher/maker is viewed in the field. Why do artists hesitate to call themselves teachers? In this essay, Saelens offers art schools a framework for looking at the tension between being an artist and being a teacher.
