Mural Arts Program – Assistant Teaching Artist for Youth Restorative Practices

 Mural Arts Program – Assistant Teaching Artist for Youth Restorative Practices

This Deadline Expired: Monday, August 27, 2018

The City of Philadelphia Mural Arts Program’s Art Education Department serves over 1,600 youth annually through free out-of-school time art education programs in neighborhoods throughout Philadelphia.  Our programs provide a creative outlet for some of the city’s most vulnerable youth.

Mural Arts seeks to build safe spaces with and for the youth we serve, and our students’ work demonstrates their capacity for thinking deeply and creating fearlessly.  Our programs provide young people between the ages of 10 and 22 year round course of study in the visual arts.  Our curriculum offers students the technical and creative foundation necessary to imagine, design, and create a wide range of individual and public works of art. Whether creating a mural or honing foundational art skills, lessons are designed with both short and long-term goals in mind, incorporating artistic and social history in addition to traditional and emerging art processes. At every turn we encourage our students to reflect on themselves and make a positive difference in the communities in which they work and play while utilizing restorative and trauma-informed care practices. 

 

The Art Education Department runs four sessions during the year—beginning in September.

In order to best serve the varied needs of our students, the Mural Arts Program’s Art Education Department seeks passionate and creative art educators who are committed to working in partnership with young people. We seek individuals who are excited about mentoring youth, eager to collaborate with fellow artists, and able to work in an energetic environment that demands flexibility, dedication, innovation, adaptability and enthusiasm. The ideal candidate is patient, has the ability to compromise, embraces challenges, and remain calm in stressful situations.

Gestural lines, fragmented patterns and assorted textures are the threads of my work which create a space for the confluence of memory, time and place.  The overarching theme of my work is a narrative drawn from personal history, my meditation and spiritual practice, community engagement and interest in the mysteries of the Universe.
