Teen Lounge Teaching Artists
Teen Lounge teaching artists are selected through an RFP and proposal fair process. In light of COVID-19, all Teen Lounge programming has been moved online and it is seeking four teaching artists to share their knowledge, creativity, and inspiration in this new virtual realm. Your proposal should offer young people an exciting opportunity to explore a theme of relevance to their age group, or experiment with materials they can access easily at home. Please also keep in mind that many of our students are coping with a lot of change and uncertainty right now – so upholding a flexible, low-stress and uplifting environment for our youth is key! The submission deadline is Thursday, October 1, for projects to be held in November and December. A virtual proposal fair is scheduled for Tuesday, October 6.
Community Partnerships in the Arts Teaching Artist
Since 1997, Fleisher has partnered with K-8 public schools and social service agencies in South Philadelphia to bring hands-on art-making directly to students. Through a co-teaching model, Fleisher’s Teaching Artist works closely with a classroom teacher to design a ten-week curriculum of creative projects that enhance students’ learning in core subjects, like math, science, social studies, and language arts, while developing studio and technical skills in the visual arts. Each year, 345 students are provided with 30 hours of free arts instruction in one of 15 arts-integrated residencies, and given a sketchbook and art-making supplies to keep.
Are you interested in teaching at Fleisher? We evaluate candidates for teaching positions on an ongoing basis.
