Teaching artists have until December 11 to apply to North Carolina Central University's Teaching Artist Certificate Program.
Established in 2017, the program offers comprehensive, online job-readiness training customized for artists whose work is learner-centered and focused on community engagement. Students learn skills such as how to design and implement arts experiences for general audiences, manage auditorium performances, engage in school residencies, and develop cultural arts programs for educational and community-based organizations. Graduates of the program have found placements in schools, arts organizations, hospitals, and social service agencies. Learn more about the program in the video below.
The North Carolina Arts Council recently awarded the program a statewide initiative grant. The grant award will help the program enhance its curriculum by paying guest artists to engage with students, develop teaching artist partnerships with communities across the state, promote statewide enrollment, and raise awareness about the teaching artist profession.
