Teaching Artist

Arts Education Program

Lane Arts Council is expanding its roster of Teaching Artists. We are seeking professional visual, performing, craft, and fine artists to provide artist residencies in schools throughout Lane County.  During  residencies Teaching Artists work with students and teachers to create extended educational arts activities, teach new skills, and encourage creative thinking.  This quality arts instruction provides young people with authentic learning experiences that engage their minds, hearts, and bodies.

An Artist Residency provides each classroom with, on average, four 45-minute learning sessions. A typical Artist Residency is completed in about two to four weeks. Most residencies occur in elementary and middle schools across Lane County.
