Description:
Art Resource Collaborative for Kids (ARCK) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit looking for Teaching Artists to implement its curriculum by integrating art and design with literacy and STEM education in the classroom. We partner with K-8 classroom teachers in the Boston Public Schools system to teach arts integration lessons while supporting students' social-emotional learning.  Our classes align with the academic content and learning themes specific to our partner schools and classrooms, as well as the Common Core State Standards and National Visual Art Standards.  ARCK uses arts integration by incorporating STEM components to enhance and engage the academic experience of our students while focusing on developing intercultural diversity awareness, leadership skills, civic engagement, social justice and 21st century skills.


Teaching Artists will lead and co-teach with classroom teachers in a classroom setting and assist in mentoring ARCK’s education interns.
