Marwen’s instructors are top talents (an Academy Award-nominated animator, principals of high-profile design and architecture firms, a nationally-published graphic-novelist, among others) and experienced educators. Marwen teaching artists propose their own courses, allowing them a high degree of flexibility.
Marwen teaching artists must:
Love working with adolescents
Have teaching ability either through learned skill sets or intuitive practice
Be willing to develop their teaching skills through regular exposure to new ideas and methods
Practice what they teach
Be flexible: meeting each student’s unique needs
Appreciate the potential for and actively encourage reciprocal learning between teacher and student
Marwen seeks course proposals three times a year for upcoming terms.
