Interested in teaching with Community Education?

Watkins Community Education hires exceptional practicing artists to teach courses that encourage creative thinking through instruction in a variety of visual arts media. Teaching Artists guide students through a process of skill development (principles, basic concepts, specific vocabulary, and latest working techniques of the medium) and individual discovery (marked by inquiry and exploration). Teaching artists create a safe and supportive learning environment where students can feel comfortable taking risks and engaging in creative challenges. Key components of creating environments designed to support student learning include demonstrations, critical reflection, references to the work of both historical and contemporary artists, and hands-on experience in our state-of-the-art studios. Individual attention and small class sizes (5-15 students) encourage participation and dialogue.  If you feel this description fits who you are as a Teaching Artist then we would love to add you to our team!

Approximately four – five months before the start of a “term” (spring, summer, or fall) we will post a “Call for Course Proposals” and corresponding “Course Proposal Forms” to be filled out by interested instructors. You can find this form by following the link below. Only those who complete the forms, and submit requested supplementary materials, by the marked deadline will be considered to teach our courses. If you have questions about filling out the forms, please contact Maggie Fansher, director of community education.
