We do not currently have an open application for Teaching Artists. However, we do have a particular program need for individuals who, in addition to having significant experience delivering arts integrated instruction, are a) bilingual and able to teach in both Spanish and English, OR b) live on the periphery of YA’s tri-county service area (Clackamas, Multnomah, and Washington counties.)
If you meet one or both of these criteria, please feel free to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
For more information, see below, or attend one of our Teaching Artist Application Info Sessions.
Bonus: visit our blog to read how our team is working to better serve students across the tri-county area with this application process.
How to join our teaching artist roster.
Please note that we do not currently have a call for Teaching Artists. If that changes, Teaching artists can apply to join rosters of Right Brain and/or Young Audiences with just one application. Young Audiences manages the teaching artist roster for both programs. For additional information about Young Audiences, visit http://www.ya-or.org/
Right Brain roster priorities.
We encourage artists to apply that fit one or both of the following: (1) bilingual artists who can teach in both Spanish and English, and/or (2) teaching artists who live on the periphery of YA’s tri-county service area (Clackamas, Multnomah and Washington counties). See specific zip codes below. Right Brain’s application review processes will prioritize artists that fit one or both of these needs while also displaying an understanding of arts-integrated teaching.
