Sealaska Heritage and the Juneau School District have partnered to offer Northwest Coast art (NWC) opportunities to high school students. We are looking for interested artists to add to a teaching artist roster, which will be used by educators seeking specialists to join their classrooms. These opportunities could be one class, semester long or whatever fits best for the teacher and artist. Artists will be paid an hourly rate based on teaching artist experience.
Your application will be reviewed for approval. If approved, your name and information about the art forms you teach will be added to an online teaching artist roster of NWC Native artists. You will then be contacted when a teacher is looking for assistance in their classroom.
