EDUCATION FELLOWSHIPS

 

Our Education Fellowships fund 2–3 month residencies for artists with at least one year of K–12 teaching experience. Available year-round.

Fellows work for 15–20 hours per week with our Education Director, Tara. All Education Fellows will gain extensive curriculum-building and teaching experience. Depending on the season, they help out in the Art Nest and our summer camps, lead community workshops, and/or design contemporary art projects with local partners. But we’re always open to new ideas — some of our best programs have come from fellows’ suggestions.

 

Summer

Summer Fellows lead our Art Scouts camp, assist our Education Director, Tara, in managing the Art Nest, work with our team of high school interns, design and lead community workshops (including at some of our summer festivals), and assist with our Teen and Adult Printmaking workshops.

 

Winter

Winter Fellows work with our Education Director, Tara, to design and lead an art project that explores contemporary artistic themes and practices with a local public school or community group. If none of our partners are available, the Fellow has the option to develop programming in the Art Nest for the community, as well as provide guest artist lectures to the community.

 

Fall and Spring

Fall and Spring Education Fellows primarily work in art classes at Webutuck Public High School as part of our Wassaic X Webutuck program. There, they show their own work, talk about careers in the arts, and get students working on long-term collaborative projects.
