Art teachers and professors do much more for their students than just teaching art. However, their ability to engage and inspire students beyond the scope of artistic endeavors often goes unnoticed beyond the realm of their school or institution. Host Antoine Williams talks with Cornell D. Jones, a mixed media artist who teaches art at Fayetteville State University as well as at the elementary level, about collaboration, the role of arts educators for students, and how identity influences his artistic endeavors.
