ArtWorks hires emerging and professional artists and art educators to work as Teaching Staff on public art projects during its Summer and After-School Programs. Teaching Staff are employed to mentor and manage dedicated groups of 14-21 year-old Apprentice Artists to produce high-quality works of art. ArtWorks projects are public and most are in the visual arts.
ArtWorks’ Programs emphasize team-teaching. The ratio of Professional Artists to Apprentices Artists is small, typically 1:4 for hands-on learning. As in traditional apprenticeships, Professional Artists lead the project design and are greatly involved in the artistic outcome so that Apprentices learn specific skills and techniques. Each project will have a Project Manager and a support staff made up of Teaching Artists. Each member of the teaching team is required to lead by example and model professionalism to the Apprentice Artists through conduct, attitude, attendance and punctuality and to perform all assigned tasks with integrity and a positive work ethic.
