Interview with Director of Arts Education, NEA

January 28, 2013

Ayanna Hudson interview

I had the chance to meet Ayanna Hudson in October while in Washington DC. She is fairly new to the National Endowment of the Arts and is a wonderful “voice” for arts education.

You can hear Ayanna’s voice and other arts educators on a talk show from January 18th. Please take a few minutes and grab a cup of hot chocolate or tea and listen to this interview. I promise it will be well worth your time.

On January 18, 2013 Ayanna Hudson, director of arts education for the National Endowment for the Arts, Kate Baker, Seattle elementary school visual arts teacher, Keith Bisaillon, Colorado Springs high school music teacher, band director and assistant wrestling coach, and Beth Eppler, Oklahoma City elementary through high school dance teacher, discuss the arts in education. They talk with Jane Williams on Bloomberg Radio’s “Bloomberg EDU.”

Amanda Minoff wrote an article on artist and Lincoln Elementary School (Augusta) art teacher Robin Brooks called Intersecting planes: the collages of Robin Brooks. Robin is presently collaborating with 12 other artists along with creating individual work. I know that many of the Maine arts educators are not only teaching but creating, performing, and exhibiting. Please be sure and send me what you’re involved with so others can learn about you.
