Intersection of Art and Education

In November, the Claire Trevor School of the Arts collaborated with the Segerstrom Center for the Arts to present "Creative Wayfinding: Teaching Artist Panel." The event illuminated new pathways for CTSA students in their creative journeys. Dean Tiffany López expressed, "The night was more than a panel; it was a collaborative exploration of the arts and education." Moderated by Dean López and Vice President of Education at Segerstrom Center for the Arts Talena Mara, the discussion featured insights from Teaching Artists Andrew Grueschow, Chantrell M. Lewis (M.F.A. '22), Ellen Schulze and Shyamala Moorty, highlighting the transformative role of Teaching Artists in bridging the gap between art and education. The partnership expands CTSA students' creative wayfinding process, offering another significant professional avenue. The event marks the first in a planned series with community partners to support student success beyond graduation.
