In search of Artists with talent to share.
We would love to hear from you if you would be interested in either an SFArtsED Artist position (working on an arts project in the public school year). Or if you’re an Artist who may wish to participate in our SFArtsED Players musical theater troupe, instruct our After-School programs or teach at SFArtsED Summer.
We’re looking specifically for SFArtsED Artists in

- Visual Arts (Mixed media, Ceramics)
- Musical Theater (Dance, Staging, Theater Direction, Choral Direction)
- Creative writing (elementary school theater/story scenes)
We seek Artists who have demonstrated flexibility and commitment to develop connections with students and the school community. Also key is the development of hands-on visual/performing arts projects that integrate critical thinking, individual learning skills and pride as well as collaborative learning.
- Active in your art form on a professional level.

- Understanding and knowledge of your art form and the ability to share those concepts with students.
