CAA Calling All Teaching Artists
The mission of the CAA is to advance the arts through leadership, advocacy, funding, programs, and education. In order to expand the educational component of our mission and to provide work for teachers in the creative sector, the CAA is calling artists who are interested in paid online and onsite teaching opportunities in 2021.
CAA Executive Director Jennifer Steele shares, “Historically, the CAA has held over 200 classes annually in our studio at the Bayou Arts Center. Response to the COVID-19 pandemic forced us to cancel the majority of our onsite classes for 2020 and go virtual with all of our programs. We are hoping to safely revive our onsite learning programs in 2021, as well as, continue our virtual learning platform through the CAA website, which has been well and widely received.”
Onsite classes will take place at the Bayou Arts Center or in another appropriate and agreed upon location. Class size is dependent on subject matter and with social distancing in mind. Proposed classes can be a one-off class, a series of classes, or a multi-day experience.
Virtual classes will be filmed either at the Bayou Arts Center, in the artist’s studio, or in another agreed upon location.
Class proposals can be based on but not limited to the following disciplines or subjects: Music (instrumental or vocal), Wellness (meditation, yoga), Dance or Movement, Acting or Improvisation, Painting (Oil, Acrylics, Watercolor, Mixed Media), Photography, Printmaking, Sculpting/Ceramics, Glass Arts, Fiber Arts, Graphic Arts, Literary (Poetry, Creative Writing, etc), Cooking, Gardening, Marketing for Artists.
The submission deadline is December 31, 2020.
