Teaching Artists Needed

We will be seeking Teaching Artists to help facilitate in-classroom activities in the areas of music, theatre, and visual art. Please visit our Application for Aesthetic Education Teaching Artists for more information and to apply! New music applicants would attend training in Summer 2020 and start serving in the 2020-2021 school year.

TrainingLogo for Help

The Aesthetic Education program requires attendance at a summer institute for both classroom teachers and teaching artists before they can participate in the program.

The next cohort of teachers and training artists will be recruited in early 2020.
