Lane Arts Council is seeking additional visual arts focused teaching artists for our roster. These artists should have strong classroom experience and provide high-quality arts education to Lane County schools. We are looking for artists who can teach ceramics, glass work, wire sculpture, media arts, and mural-making.
Artists work with students and teachers to create extended educational arts activities, teach new skills, develop creative thinking, and offer career insights. Quality arts instruction through in-school artist residencies provides young people with authentic learning experiences that engage minds, hearts, and bodies.
This is a contracted position. A one week artist residency typically provides four learning sessions per day, over five days (20 hours). A typical artist residency is two weeks (40 hours). Most residencies work in elementary and middle schools across Lane County.
Do you have experience with visual arts education or know someone who might be qualified for this opportunity?
