Most Memorable TATIP Moment

"In our first TATIP training session we were asked to create something with given materials that expressed ourselves as artists and teaching artists.  Materials were paper, pens, markers, hand instruments, string, tape, all types of craft supplies, and of course our voices and bodies.  As we all furiously began to create I looked around the room at a group of artists willing to ‘jump’.  As we finished and returned to our circle I thought we were all going to present our work to each other, but we were asked to share with the person next to us.  It became this intimate sharing happening all over the room.  People were reading to one another, speaking about their artwork or making music for each other.  We were talking about our work and what we hoped to do with our artistry in teaching.  I felt like we were all sharing with each other simultaneously, and I felt a strong connection to my fellow teaching artist as we shared our stories one on one.  It was satisfying being a part of this open and giving group and knowing that we were just beginning our journey together."
