Wing Luke Museum
Call for YouthCAN Teaching Artists
- Budget: $1,400-$2,000 per quarter
Eligibility: Selections will be determined by a review of required submitted materials and an interview. Selection criteria includes: interest/experience in youth arts education, demonstrated artistic experience, and experience working directly with people from diverse backgrounds. The Wing Luke Museum’s commitment to advancing racial and social equity includes centering artists of color, particularly those from, working in or have familiarity with the Seattle Chinatown-International District.
The Wing Luke Museum seeks teaching artists to develop and implement studio visual arts
curriculum intended for high school aged youth in any medium for the summer, fall, and winter
quarters of the 2020/2021 YouthCAN Program. Creative work produced by youth will culminate
into a group exhibit at the end of each quarter in the Frank Fujii Youth Space at the Wing Luke
Museum. The required commitment per selected teaching artist is one quarter.
YouthCAN is a free, afterschool arts program hosted at the Wing Luke Museum for high school students, ages 14-19. The program is designed to provide exposure to arts professions, increase knowledge and familiarity with the Chinatown-International District, build community and leadership, and to connect with the museum, its mission, and its programs.
The selected teaching artist per quarter will be expected to collaborate with YouthCAN staff in overall planning and implementation of the curriculum for that quarter. Exact teaching schedule within each quarter will be determined with the selected teaching artist. Visual arts studio projects should be appropriate for high school aged youth between the ages of 14-19 and with varying art and English-speaking capabilities.
