Brun and Meghan Schott, Urban Arts Gallery's January show will disprove the old adage “those who can’t, teach.” This exhibit will feature the work of local art educators and raise awareness and interest in public visual arts education. The participating artists will present a piece of their own work, a piece of example work they create for their classes, and an example rubric that explains the lesson and methodology to the viewer. “Those Who Can’t” will showcase Utah Art Educators’ aesthetic skills and provide commentary on the teacher shortage in Utah.

The exhibit will hang from January 2nd to February 3rd, with a gallery stroll reception on January 18th from 6-9pm with networking opportunities for Educators and Activities for Students. Admission is free and open to the public.
