Activity Submission

Ongoing – Creative Activity Kits

Create meaningful and accessible art that makes a difference in students’ lives! Creative Activity Kits contain workbooks with activities in various art forms (visual art, music, dance, and storytelling) for both individual and communal learning amongst students. With an umbrella theme of Community, Courage and Creative Capacity, CAK Teaching Artists create activities that establish genuine connections between students and art. 

Teaching Artists for Creative Activity Kits must have experience working with students aged 6-13 and a general knowledge of creating virtual activities. 

If interested, please contact andrea@artsignite.org

Video Submission

Ongoing – Arts Ignite NOW!

Ignite the arts anytime and anywhere with our workshop video series, Arts Ignite NOW! Each video highlights a different art form, including music, visual art, dance, poetry, and storytelling combined with one or more of Arts Ignite’s core skills. Led by Arts Ignite Teaching Artists, these asynchronous virtual workshops allow learners to strengthen their creative capacity, language acquisition skills, creative problem-solving skills, and innovation. 

Teaching Artists for Arts Ignite NOW! must have experience leading and creating activities for students ages 5-16 and the ability to self-record and submit content to the Arts Ignite team. Teaching Artists will take on one of two roles, our workshop leader or our video host. Our workshop leader should be prepared to create an asynchronous video lesson in their respective art form, while adhering to Arts Ignite pillars. Our video host should be prepared to welcome viewers, lead an introductory warm-up that gets viewers ready for the upcoming lesson, and lead a final reflection activity that gets viewers thinking more deeply about the lesson.  Apply here.
