Marwen is currently accepting course proposals for the upcoming Summer and Fall

We only accept electronic course proposals. Incomplete or late proposals will not be considered.

The Role of the Teaching Artist

Marwen hires exceptional practicing artists to teach courses that encourage creative thinking through instruction in a variety of visual art media. Key components of creating environments designed to support student learning include demonstrations, critiques, guest artists, field trips, and hands-on experience in our state-of-the-art studios. Individual attention and small class sizes encourage participation and dialogue. Strong staff support, opportunities for professional development and peer-to-peer learning set the foundation for teaching artists to thrive at Marwen.

 

SUMMER 2015: MONDAY, JULY 6 - FRIDAY, JULY 31  

As our own facility is under renovation, Marwen’s 2015 summer term will be held in UIC’s Art and Design Building at 400 S. Peoria St. Please note that while we will certainly maximize our use of the space this summer, it will be a condensed term. We won’t be able to schedule as many courses as we would during our regular summer programming. For dates, times, and studio spaces, please see the proposal form (below).

To apply, please submit your completed course proposal/syllabus form as well as your updated resume/CV to Sara Gothard, Senior Manager of Studio Programs, sgothard@marwen.org by Sunday, April 5, 2015.

 

FALL 2015: TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 29 - SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 21

We’ll be moving back home to an expanded and improved facility! For our fall term we will be able to schedule courses in eight studios on three floors of our building here at 833 N. Orleans St. For dates, times, and further information on the new studio spaces, please see the proposal form (below).

To apply, please submit your completed course proposal/syllabus form as well as your updated resume/CV to Sara Gothard, Senior Manager of Studio Programs, sgothard@marwen.org by Sunday, May 10, 2015.
