Paid Teaching Artist Fellowship

Posted by Armory Professional Development on 31 March 2017

Armory Center for the Arts is seeking visual artists to participate in nine-month Teaching Artist training and teaching program. The program involves learning to teach children and teens, through gallery touring techniques and hands-on art making experiences in a contemporary art context. The Fellows participate in a series of training sessions throughout the first three months which emphasize innovative teaching methods, educational theory, and idea-based teaching processes. Fellows also receive one-on-one guidance and mentoring by experienced teaching artists as they learn about and assist in other Armory programs.

Graduate or post-graduate MFA students in visual art may apply. Prior teaching experience is preferred. Additionally, applicants would have an interest or background in Math and/or Science education.
