Resource Description
The ArtReach Mural Program is seeking to contract with mural artists with experience teaching and working with youth and communities. This is a special role in which Mural Teaching Artists have the chance to work with small groups of youth and/or families to dream up and execute site-specific murals from start to finish.
Opportunity Description
The Mural Teaching Artist is not just a muralist, but a teacher. MTAs work directly with small groups of youth and/or families in both school or community settings to teach art skill workshops, collaborative mural design workshops, and lead on-site, large-scale mural painting. MTAs take ideas, drawings, and words from students, community, and staff to form a cohesive mural design that represents the site’s community and values. Following the design process, the group then works together to paint the mural under the lead and direction of the MTA. This is a unique opportunity for mural artists to not only showcase their own mural art style but to blend it with the vision, art, and ideas of youth/families of specific sites through listening, sharing, and collaborating. Requirements: -1+ year teaching experience teaching/working with youth -Experienced in mural-making – mural design, mural design mock-ups, design transfer, painting -Professional, engaged, and polite demeanor when working with school/community site students, teachers, admin, and custodial staff -Willingness to learn and work within the ArtReach Mural Program process -Transportation to and from mural sites -Current Business License -Current TB test (required to work on a school campus, can be obtained prior to project assignment) ArtReach covers the cost of ALL mural materials, delivery of materials to the site, any lift/scaffolding/ladder needs, logistical coordination with the site, and assists with painting when needed, priming, and sealing. All murals are compensated per project through an Artist Stipend, based on the size and duration of the mural. If you are interested in being a Mural Teaching Artist with ArtReach, please send the following (in a combined pdf document) to -3-8 samples of mural work -Paragraph on your experience teaching/working with youth -Current resume We look forward to hearing from you, learning from each other, and connecting to collaborate.
