Casita Maria has an exciting opportunity for talented, engaging, and dynamic Teaching Artists to lead successful programming as a joint effort between Casita’s Education & Creative Arts Departments. Most programs will integrate K-12th-grade students/artist-led projects as part of an arts and education focused on the school program.
Most programs are interdisciplinary and offer youth a wide range of skills to learn and/or develop. The curriculum used promotes engagement with the Arts / STEAM / CORE needs and aligns with NYC Department of Education Arts Blueprint targets and the NYS Common Core Standards. The main responsibility of the teaching artist is to introduce participants to all aspects and variations of the specific discipline being taught ex. dance, visual art, music (violin, piano), musical theater, improv, etc.
