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.


Marwen WILL BEGIN accepting proposals for the 2018 spring Term in september 2017.

We are looking for teaching artists of all disciplines, (particularly; digital media, graphic design, video, photography, street art, ceramics, and painting), who have experience working with 6th-12th grade youth.
