Mural Arts Program – Lead Teaching Artist for Foundations and Innovations

Mural Arts Program – Lead Teaching Artist for Foundations and Innovations

This Deadline Expired: Monday, August 27, 2018

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 a year-long 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. 

 

The Art Education Department runs four sessions during the year—three school year session and one summer intensive.

 

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, and enthusiasm.

 

Lead Teaching Artist Positions

Lead teaching artists work closely with Art Education staff to develop an art-based curriculum.  They inspire and guide students in creating individual works of art, designing murals, experimenting with media, and working alongside other professional artists on large scale public art projects.  In addition to assisting with recruitment and maintaining a classroom blog and attendance records as required by Mural Arts and its funders, they mentor an assistant teaching artist.  The position is 25 hours a week and requires attendance at regularly scheduled meetings, reliable transportation and professional development.  Mural-making experience is preferred but not required.

 

Qualifications:

 

Please provide cover letter with resume and references by Monday, August 27th to arted.resumes@muralarts.org .

My artwork talks quietly about the underlying significance of the domestic sphere on artist production. It argues for the relevance of craft, specifically ceramics and fiber arts, by creating a conversation between the two mediums. Displaying a fascination with the way fiber marks clay, my ceramics exhibit just how subtle those marks can be.
