Drawing Lab 

One of the things that always comes up when talk turns to the losses we suffer around education—our regrets at being of a certain age without having brought certain things with us—is drawing. (Languages being the other big one.) It has a kind of inevitability, just as a conversation about waning literacy will eventually turn …

Noguchi and Drawing 

First off, if you haven't been to the Noguchi Museum, go. It's a sublime space to spend time with a sublime artist. (Weekdays you can have it almost all to yourself.) Second, go now. The current exhibit of animal drawings, is a rare glimpse into a different medium for the artist. Both their own, and …

Mediated Earth: Footprints & Shoemaking 

You are as quick as a spartan hound to pick up the tracks of the argument... —Plato, Parmenides 128b-c The question of footprints, of the traces we leave in our contact with the world, is one that runs through the history of philosophy of education. How do we know where we have been? And what …

I just got back from meeting with the photographer for our Relational Drawing gig at the Whitney tomorrow night, and I've been reflecting on the whole process. The working premise of our experimentation with "relational drawing" is that movement and drawing belong together, and that exploring the sensory coherence of our postures and actions is …

The Aesthetics of Education 

I've been working a lot lately on the imagery of educational philosophy. Which is to say: what if we took the aesthetics of education not to be a particular sub-discipline, but instead thought of educational thought as essentially an aesthetic problem? What is the "art," in its expansive sense, of education? Having taught a few …

They Roam the Earth Again 

Yesterday was Three Kings Day, and for me it was an opportunity to revisit and reflect on a project I worked on last year. El Museo del Barrio commissioned the artist Polina Porras Sivolobova to create replacements for the Three Kings puppets they had used for decades in the Three Kings Day Parade. My primary …

Mediumism: The Art of Education 

As someone who takes the aesthetics of education seriously, I was pleased to be asked to respond to René Arcilla's new book, Mediumism. The Panel is this evening, and should prove interesting. In part because Arcilla confounds the line concerning aesthetics and education. If Art Education, at first glance, is simply about the teaching of …
