CAIP Teaching Artist
About The Community Arts Internship Program:
The Community Arts Internship Program (CAIP) provides young people with the opportunity to exercise leadership skills and explore relevant social and personal issues through visual arts. This year CAIP will collaborate with the Young Queens on the Rise of Mission Girls, a gender specific support group for girls who have been involved in the Juvenile Justice System, or for those who engage in “at-risk” behaviors. CAIP is designed to provide youth with valuable training in art making and community engagement. The weekly workshops will guide youth through the process of formulating an idea, researching and investigating the topic, designing an action plan and implementing a community-based arts project. The final project will be presented to the public at Southern Exposure in December 2019.
About the Teaching Artist Opportunity:
The CAIP Teaching Artist is responsible for leading one workshop per week from September through December 2019. In collaboration with the AIE Program Coordinator, the Teaching Artist will develop a curriculum that explores topics and concerns central to the youth’s daily lives and the individuals in their community, and produce a final project to be exhibited in December 2019.
