A Teaching Artist is a practicing professional artist with the complementary skills and sensibilities of an educator, who engages people in learning experiences in, through, and about the arts (as defined by Eric Booth). Teaching Artists will work in a variety of learning environments that serves the needs of local communities.
Teaching Artists will work as independent contractors with highly flexible schedules that vary depending on program demand and time of year. While some programs may occur during typical school or office hours, others may occur after school and on weekends. This work is perfect for freelance artists who have a passion, talent, or interest in teaching.
