ASI 2018 Fall Teaching Artists

Dedicated and committed volunteers wanted! – with a passion for art and a desire to share their knowledge and skills with students who would not otherwise have access to arts.

ASI is looking for talented and compassionate volunteer artists, mentors and teachers who want to:

  • Give back
  • Make a positive change
  • Feel more confident about their own creativity, imagination and problem solving skills while empowering youth to have these skills
  • Learn new art making techniques
  • Learn new teaching skills
  • Have the camaraderie of working with a team
  • Meet like-minded volunteers, teachers and artists
  • Gain experience working in the classroom, mural painting speaking to an audience

ASI provides a meaningful educational experience for both volunteers and students over the course of 5 weeks. We ask volunteers to volunteer for 6 hours a week for 5 weeks. This includes assisting with two hours of teaching in a classroom, 2 hours of set up and clean up and 2 hours hour of teaching and reflection with blogging/meetings.

At the end of our program, volunteers and interns will help put on a student art show and build their own teaching portfolios while gathering the rewarding feedback from parents and youth on the pride, achievement and self-expression that community art making and sharing instills.

ASI values:

Mutual Respect—“ASI believes that all volunteers should be treated with courtesy and respect so everyone can feel safe enough to be creative and self expressive.”

Commitment—“ASI volunteers are dedicated to fulfilling our shared vision while embracing the challenges of the future to assure youth will have access to the Arts.”

Teamwork—“ASI believes that a community working together toward a common goal can achieve better results than individuals can achieve independently.
