The Marwen Teaching Artist Fellows are a group of five of our most dedicated and enthusiastic teaching artists who help make Marwen the best it can be for our students, teaching artists, assistant teaching artists, and staff. We hire them to take the roles of advocate, role model, and researcher. Through shared dialogue on yearly themes, Marwen’s Teaching Artist Fellows solidify their commitment to best practices in the fields of art education and youth development and help to better integrate these practices into the fabric of the organization. The program is rooted in our commitment to attracting and retaining the highest-quality teaching artists, to give them a sense of ownership of Marwen’s mission, and to develop meaningful relationships to further the work they do here.
Each Teaching Artist Fellow has taught at Marwen for at least three terms and each serves on the Fellows’ team for a minimum of one year. In addition to their individual teaching schedules, the group regularly convenes to discuss and determine best practices at Marwen, to work with staff on the reflection and evaluation of our programs, and to plan and lead professional development for their colleagues.
There are no open Fellows positions at this time.
