The ArtReach Teaching Artist works directly with San Diego schools to teach visual arts programs that focus on social-emotional learning, integrative learning, and exposing students to historical, modern, and contemporary artists whose art celebrates and reflects the experiences our youth are navigating today. TAs work closely with the Residency Program Manager and school liaison to develop a curriculum based on the pulse of each school’s community and values.

The ArtReach TAs’ work is to foster resiliency, belonging, and collaboration while teaching technical art skills to each ArtReach student. TAs are instrumental in delivering our core mission, making visual arts education accessible to all students, regardless of ability, socioeconomic, or demographic classifications. TAs harness and uplift the creative brilliance and resilience that resides in each young artist they work with.

RFQ: Mural Teaching Artists

Download PDF for more information: HERE

The ArtReach Mural Program is seeking to contract with mural artists with experience teaching and working with youth and communities. This is a special role in which Mural Teaching Artists have the chance to work with small groups of youth and/or families to dream up and execute site-specific murals from start to finish.

The Mural Teaching Artist is not just a muralist, but a teacher. MTAs work directly with small groups of youth and/or families in both school or community settings to teach art skill workshops, collaborative mural design workshops, and lead on-site, large-scale mural painting. MTAs take ideas, drawings, and words from students, community, and staff to form a cohesive mural design that represents the site’s community and values. Following the design process, the group then works together to paint the mural under the lead and direction of the MTA. This is a unique opportunity for mural artists to not only showcase their own mural art style but to blend it with the vision, art, and ideas of youth/families of specific sites through listening, sharing, and collaborating.
