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.


Courses are proposed in two stages.  

Pleaes see the following documents below: Course Proposal - Part I, Couse Syllabus - Part II, and the Supply Request Form

When proposals are being accepted, for your course to be considered you must submit completed Course Proposal - Part I and resume/CV to Sara Gothard, Manager of Studio Programs, at sgothard@marwen.org by the designated deadlines.
