Teaching Artists / Summer Term 2024 [Marwen]

Marwen is seeking exceptional practicing artists to design and teach visual arts courses for 6-12 graders from all across Chicago. We are looking for experienced Teaching Artists (TAs) with active practices aligned with the core values of creative youth development: youth voice, collective action, and social justice. We welcome proposals in all mediums, particularly ceramics, digital media, video, photography, fashion, painting, and comics.

Teaching Artists have the freedom to design courses rooted in their unique mediums and areas of interest. They are free to teach at times that work for them within Marwen’s term schedule, and are provided with a studio, materials, and staff support for their course. Staff also support youth recruitment and provide course rosters and communication with families throughout the term.
