Notes from the Spring 2021 Photoville Educator Lab

Creating with Community

Throughout the Spring 2021 Educator Lab, we had lively, exciting, challenging, inspiring, and fun conversations amongst educators and artists about creating collaborative and community-based art with students.


Together, we asked questions, swapped ideas and workshopped new strategies.


We commissioned a team of college Student Notetakers to document the discussions. We asked them to take notes from their perspective and in their style. As young people interested in the intersection of art and education, what stood out to them? And how would they like to share it?


We are sharing this notebook to spark community collaboration ideas for you and your students.
