ArtCore Weaver

ArtCore is an evolving model for arts-based school enhancement that unites community based teaching artists with middle school educators to generate creative, challenging and sustainable learning opportunities for historically marginalized students. Teaching artists work side by side with one grade level of educators per year, modeling arts integration approaches across the school. The current open position is set to work with the 8th grade class at Oaklea Middle School. This collaboration cultivates skilled cohorts of students and renews a strong school culture that values the unique creativity of every student and educator. By engaging every member of the school community as a learner, ArtCore goes to the heart of integrative, imaginative, and culturally responsive learning.

We named this position a “weaver” as the teaching artist is weaving the arts into teaching and learning. The role of the ArtCore Weaver is an integral part of the overarching arts education programs for Lane Arts Council and our partner Educational Policy Improvement Center (EPIC).

This is a contracted position. The budget range for this position is $20,000-$30,000, depending on scope of work, with the expectation that this Weaver will provide an average of approximately 16-20 hours of in-school support each week.
