Teen Programming Delphi Programs at the Philadelphia Museum of Art
deadline: Friday, September 30, 2022
The Philadelphia Museum of Art is seeking practicing professional artists who are interested in sharing their work with Philadelphia Teens through the museum’s Delphi Programs in the 2022-2023 school year.
The Delphi Project Foundation has supported in-school and after-school programming for Philadelphia public school students through the museum for over 20 years.
A core component of these programs is to introduce practicing artists into classrooms to share their craft & story with students, encouraging their creativity & experimentation as young artists.
We are currently seeking artists to be considered for:
– Visiting Artist Residencies (In-person)
– Guest Artist Workshops or Speaker Series (Virtual or In-person)
Visiting Artist Residencies are an opportunity to engage with local Philadelphia High Schools & Middle Schools through in-depth learning in communities & neighborhoods throughout the city. This is a collaborative experience for artists to be paired with a public-school art teacher to develop a project that engages their students and enriches the classroom experience. Artists are selected for both short term (5 week) residencies and long term (15+ weeks) partnerships that occur throughout the school year. The museum provides a stipend for Visiting Artists, a generous supply budget, fieldtrips to the museum for students, and curriculum support from the guidance of professional museum educators.
Guest Artist Workshops are an opportunity to engage teens in after-school programs that take place online and at the museum through the Teen Sketch & Teen Media clubs. These programs invite practicing artists and art professionals to share their stories & techniques, opening dialogues with students and demystifying career pathways in the arts. Artists can be invited in as Guest Speakers to highlight their practice in a short talk or for Guest Artist Workshops which include an artist talk and a hands-on art making session.
The Teen Sketch is a creative space for students to share their art, learn from each other, and grow together while exploring Painting, Printmaking, Sculpture & more.
Teen Media is a program for teens to explore storytelling within the museum’s collection and experiment in their own artmaking through
photography, video, sound & performance.
