For Artists

The Armory Teaching Artist Fellowship is a nine month, intensive training and teaching program offered in partnership with Art Center College of Art and Design, Claremont Graduate University, and Otis College of Art and Design.

Graduate and post graduate students are trained to become professional teaching artists through in-depth training sessions, mentoring, team teaching and assisting master teaching artists in the various Armory’s programs. Some examples of the topics covered in the weekly training sessions are: lesson planning, curriculum development, classroom management, touring strategies, questioning strategies, theories on arts education, child development, content standards, interdisciplinary education and anti-bias education.

Fellows transition through the stages of observing, team-teaching with a master teacher, team-teaching with one another, and eventually teaching in other Armory programs. Fellows are selected annually through an application process beginning in May and the program then runs from September through June.

Armory Faculty Training are opportunities for current Armory faculty members to receive ongoing professional development in the areas of program design, curriculum development, gallery touring strategies, teacher/artist collaborations, mentoring, and art-making techniques. Experts in the field of education and art education are invited to present each year. Training sessions are offered from September through June.

Customized Professional Development opportunities offer similar programs created to fit the needs of arts organizations, nonprofits institutions, or private businesses.
