If you are a practising artist who is passionate about Arts Education and would like to gain the tools and experience to lead inspiring projects in the classroom then this could be the programme for you! Taking place over two school terms, you will have the opportunity to support a lead artist in a range of school settings, lead an activity or session with support and gain practical skills in planning and evaluating formal learning projects. There is also the potential to lead a project independently in the third term.
You will take part in group meetings with lead artists and Bow Arts staff, providing space for discussion and reflection of your experiences. Bow Arts delivers free workshops and seminars which Artist trainees have free access to, including the Bow Arts Teachers CPD. By the end of the programme, trainees will have experience in planning projects, writing session plans, delivering a workshop activity, and understanding school settings and curriculum contexts.
Applications for the next round of Artist Educator Trainees will open July 2020 and the programme will start September 2020.
