SoEx Seeks THREE Lead Teaching Artists, THREE volunteer Artist Assistants, and ONE intern for Mission Voices Summer 2012!
MVS is a five-week intensive summer arts program. It gives young people the opportunity to exercise leadership skills and participate in their community by exploring relevant social and personal issues through visual arts. The program is a collaboration between Southern Exposure's Artist in Education program and community-based youth organizations in San Francisco. The program bridges neighborhoods and cultures by pairing local artists with teens from the Bay Area.
Three Teaching Artists, along with Southern Exposure's Artists in Education Program Manager, and three Volunteer Assistants, will collaborate and teach approximately 30 teenagers this summer to produce an art environment based on a socially relevant theme. The program will culminate with a final project and exhibition, on view August 8 - 25, 2012.
Artists are responsible for teaching three times per week for the entire five-week program (Monday, July 9 - Wednesday August 8, 2011), plus pre-program curriculum planning for four weeks starting June 6, as well as extra time to install and de-install the final exhibition by August 29. Classes run at Southern Exposure for three hours and take place on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 1-4 pm.
