Last year ArtiCulture was awarded an MRAC Arts Learning grant to bring visual arts programming to seven local Minneapolis public schools over the 2014-2015 school year. With this grant, we've been able to lead 5-week classes throughout the school year at each of the following schools: Dowling, Seward, Hale, Bancroft, Northrup, Lake Nokomis Keewaydin, and Lake Nokomis Wenonah.

 

The neighborhoods and communities where these schools reside are generally not affluent. Economic struggles in schools and academic testing have caused many to cut out programming "extras" such as the arts. While schools feel financially strained and often pressured to teach towards testing, the arts curriculum we offer is a necessity in lieu of such academic constraints. Our programming, which emphasizes the creative process over product, is designed to develop inspired learners and to encourage advanced reasoning skills by giving students creative freedom through guided exploration.

 

We invite you learn more about our work in this vein here on our website.

UPDATE 3/30/15: All positions for the 2015 summer internship program are now full.

Each summer from June through the end of August, interns have the opportunity to work side-by-side with professional artists in an educational setting by assiting them in weeklong summer camps for kids going into preK-grade 6.

Interns will gain first-hand knowledge of teaching philosophies and curriculum development, while getting valuable experience in a non-profit arts setting. This is a paid intership. Applicants holding (or working on) art degrees are preferred. Experience working with children a plus.

Complete information and an online application are on the internship page. Check it out and apply today!
