Arts Ignite Teaching Artist Training Program
Participants in the Arts Ignite Teaching Artist Training Program will engage in a multimodal learning experience that explores the foundational values of teaching artistry and their connections to Arts Ignite programming. Teaching artists at all levels of experience are welcome.
The program will begin by inviting participants to contemplate how their personal experiences as artists and learners affect their teaching philosophy and perspectives on creativity. From there, they’ll use those insights in order to develop a personal teaching artist mission statement. After brainstorming potential workshop ideas aligned with Arts Ignite’s core values and programming, participants will investigate strategies for cultivating learning spaces that prioritize trauma informed care, Social Emotional Learning, and culturally responsive pedagogies. At the culmination of the course, teaching artists will develop workshops and lesson plans that model and pursue Arts Ignite’s mission, vision, and core values in all aspects of teaching artistry.
