a;edge 2020 (Art Educators’ Developmental and Generative Explorations) marks the 9th edition of the annual art exhibition organised by the Singapore Teachers’ Academy for the aRts (STAR) to nurture the professional identity of art teachers as Teacher- artists. Brought together through the collaborative and mentoring efforts of a dynamic organising team, a;edge 2020 presents a total of 24 individual and collective works created by Teacher-artists from 38 schools and MOE HQ.
Teacher-artists are archetypes of Art teachers as practising artists. Through the continual process of honing their creative practice, they relish the sense of fulfillment and pride in their artmaking journey. In the same way, their practice is valuable in further developing their teaching capacities that support their pedagogy as art teachers.
We extend our heartfelt congratulations to the Teacher-artists! It is our hope that this exhibition will inspire more art teachers in the fraternity to pursue their first love of art as we continue to seed creativity in our art classrooms.
