We are a suburban Chicago public school district. We have approximately $2000 every year available to us to use from our PTA to bring in an area artist to work with our 2nd grade students in the spring. As a Fine Arts Team we work from an inquiry based approach and facilitate the production of an inter-arts show with our 2nd graders. This participating artist joins our process and helps the 2nd graders communicate their message and sharing their expertise within a certain arts medium.
We are seeking artists who are interested in helping 7-8 year olds develop new art skills while communicating the message that they have developed for their spring inter-arts show. Participating artist has to be willing to give up ownership of their art and act as facilitator and guide while sharing his/her expertise. This is a collaborative experience.
