The Teaching Artist Cohort is a program that aims to center the essential and visionary expertise of Chicago community-based teaching artists within Marwen’s programming. This model provides ample space for teaching artists to build a values-based community of practice with each other and co-design relevant arts programming alongside young artists, emerging teaching artists, and staff at Marwen.

 

Rooted in the core values of creative youth development (racial justice, collective action, and youth voice) this program aims to cultivate and facilitate relevant online and hybrid in-person visual arts programming with young artists ages 11-18 from across Chicago. Programming is also geared toward engaging intergenerationally with family members of young artists who participate in our virtual programming.
