Janet Taylor is a high school art teacher in the western suburbs of Chicago, teaching any and all media from jewelry/metals and photography to sculpture and AP Art and Design. After spending 10 years in New York City and Chicago working as a scenic artist, she returned to her passion of teaching. Over the past 6 years, Taylor has developed a Choice curriculum in all media and believes that by guiding students through their own creative processes, they are empowered to create unique and meaningful artworks. You may have seen her presentations at NAEA and Illinois Art Education Association conferences over the past several years, in which she discusses the journey (both successes and failures) to move her classroom structures to Choice and TAB. Taylor currently writes for the Art of Education University Magazine and is a founder and contributor to the Art Ed Collective.
