Become a Young Audiences Teaching Artist

16 Jan

We want artists who…

  • are committed to inspiring the imaginations of young people
  • know the craft of their art forms deeply, through study and experience, and have their own dynamic artistic practices
  • bring young people into the world of their art forms, and embolden them to explore
  • see themselves as learners and teachers, and seek out opportunities for growth
  • show a willingness to collaborate
  • have experience with, and strategies for, working with the complexities and challenges of school environments
  • are based in the Portland metropolitan area
  • We welcome applications from residency and performing artists in all disciplines. We are especially looking for artists who teach residencies that explore ceramic murals, Mexican folkloric dance, photography, and metal arts. Our programs are based in a 10-county area in Oregon and SW Washington. Schools (especially elementary schools) are the largest populations served, and some programming takes place in community settings. Some of our roster artists also choose to become arts providers for the Right Brain Initiative, through Young Audiences.

Benefits of Becoming a Young Audiences Artist

  • Extensive and diverse opportunities to hone teaching, presentation, and artistic skills, and to network with other artists
  • Reliable payment for services
  • Stipends for professional development
  • Support in planning and working with schools
  • Program publicity via YA’s website and communications with schools
