Artist Educators are professional and practicing artists that we contract to lead or support in planning and delivering our projects. Our work is wide ranging and projects can vary across different visual arts media, for different audiences and clients. We work with a variety of schools, youth and community settings across East London and beyond. Projects might include school workshops, artist talks or studio visits, after school clubs, training for staff in the arts and community art projects. We keep a list of artists in various disciplines on our books whom we contact with opportunities to work with us. This may mean we approach an artist directly for a particular project or that we send out a project brief and invite artists to submit a proposal on how they would achieve the project aims. We would then choose an appropriate artist based on this.
If you are a professional and practising artist and would like to apply to work with our Education team as an Artist Educator, please complete our Application form (Word, 46 KB) and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Based on your application, we may invite you to an Artist Meeting where you would meet the team and find out more about the kind of projects that you could get involved in. After the meeting, the team will decide whether you would be a good fit for our programme and if so add you to our Artist Educator database.
If you have any questions about working with us, we recommend that you read our FAQs section. We offer mentoring, volunteering and shadowing opportunities for artists looking to develop their skills and experience in working with children and young people.
