Framed by stories of young artists and teaching art, Richard Olsen’s memoir, Art, Kids, and Institutions, dares to ask: Who are these beings called kids and how do we engage them? What role... More > can art have in their lives? What is the nature of the institutions they find themselves in? Why can’t learning (and teaching) be liberating and filled with joy?

It becomes a polemic for the present. “Poised between sharp social commentary and tender teacher wisdom, Art, Kids, and Institutions embodies its artful subject. In language that is rich and spare, it speaks to the simple artistry of great teachers—their commitment, caring, resilience, and courage.” –-Jessica Hoffmann Davis, EdD Founder of the Arts in Education Program, Harvard Graduate School of Education< Less

"My First Year In Purgatory" is a teacher memoir with illustrations, about my adventures and insights as a Gen Xer teaching in a crumbling urban school district. In it, I lead two... More > semi-functional lives: embattled educator by day –whose students make Damien from the “Omen” look like a lightweight, and urban adventurer by night. I witness teachers driven out of classrooms by students they can’t control, bullies given free reign to torment the weak, chaos that makes learning nearly impossible, and administrators who sweep discipline under the rug. Weekends, I scour art openings, cafes, bars and the Internet for romance, meaning, and escape. As I struggle through my first year, I begin to suspect that that all those movies and books about the “dedicated teacher who won over those tough kids” are a myth; and that there is a crisis in discipline that can’t be solved by lone heroes.< Less
