Hearts to Art Summer Camp Teaching Artist
This unique camp brings together young people between the ages of 7 and 14 who have experienced the death of a parent to celebrate the healing power of creative play. Through the exploration and creation of theatre, music, and dance, Hearts to Art encourages communication and collaboration, fosters emotional growth, and provides friendship, compassion and community. Through interaction with young people who have experienced a similar loss, campers understand they are not alone.
Teaching Artists in Music and Dance are practicing artists in their respective disciplines who are committed to working with and educating young people. Teaching Artists teach their primary discipline to camp participants; create and implement curriculum; collaborate with Hearts to Art Staff and other professional artists; and assist in the development of cumulative projects that support Hearts to Art mission in accordance with the camp theme. Working with the Hearts To Art Team as a whole, all teaching artists are responsible for fostering a supportive and creative environment throughout the camp day. The ideal candidate will have 3+ years of related professional experience, including performance and teaching, be able to create curriculum accessible to a variety of age ranges and artistic ability, and have familiarity working with young people and communities that have experienced loss or trauma.
