Artizein: Art and Teaching Journal

Artizein: Art and Teaching Journal expand the perception of the possible.

The arts are for all.

The places where artistic activity occurs will always differ. The intentions for making art will always be as varied as the people who create.

Yet the most profound and mysterious attribute of the arts appears to be constant: the arts expand what we think is possible. We lean into that future, listening for a resonance to bring back to the present. This is the work of the arts: to prepare us with the possible.

The journal Artizein supports this preparation. In fact, the Greek verb artizein means to prepare. An etymological search reveals the word’s close associations are good company for the arts with examples such as artem (L.), meaning a skill or craft; artus(L.), suggesting a joining or fitting together; or artios (Gr.), describing that which is complete or suitable.

We offer Artizein as this preparation for the possible. An opportunity to craft, to prepare, to join together. To encourage a community of artists, teachers, and scholars. To explore the innate creative spirit in us all as the most important work of the future self, and the future world.

“There is no inherent difference between fullness of activity and artistic activity; the latter is one with being fully alive. Hence, it is not something possessed by a few persons and setting them apart from the rest of mankind, but is the normal or natural human heritage.” –John Dewey
