Call for Artist-Educators
Scottsdale Arts Learning & Innovation’s Cultural Connections Through the Arts program offers a broad range of school residencies to support classroom curriculum and to elevate aspiring artists to the next level. We are seeking artists and/or educators to lead classroom-based poetry and spoken word residency services.
This artist-educator will lead weeklong, in-school residencies for English language arts classes with goals of inspiring students to write, encouraging a deeper level of understanding of and appreciation for poetry’s usages, and, ultimately, helping them to break down barriers and build communities through stories. Services may begin as early as September 2019 and extend through May 2020. Residencies are typically formatted five days (one week) with one hour per day, per class.
Docents are volunteers who have graduated from SMoCA’s stimulating training program to share their art knowledge with Museum visitors, schools, retirement homes and community groups. To find out how you can become a prospective Docent, attend one of our bi-annual informational Docent Coffee Meetings.
Scottsdale Arts offers challenging and comprehensive internships for undergraduates, recent graduates, and graduate students who are interested in gaining experience in the arts and business/arts administration fields. Scottsdale Arts is a 501c(3) non-profit organization that is vested with the responsibility of administering and developing the arts within the City of Scottsdale. Our internships are on a volunteer basis and can be coordinated with staff to aid in receiving academic credit.
