The Arts Council is recruiting four (4) artists interested in working in the public schools.


The Fresno Arts Council with the support of the California Arts Council has developed a pilot training program for practicing artists to work the Schools. Critical components of the Artist in Schools training include: 1. developing a working knowledge of California Visual and Performing Arts Standards as well as the new national Common Core Standards for language arts and mathematics; 2.) learning techniques to integrate art into school standards and curriculum; 3.) learning strategies to work with classroom teachers to develop arts lessons; 4.) learning strategies to increase student engagement and participation;  5.) mastering classroom management skills concerning materials and movement;  6.) and creating arts learning assessments.


We are now seeking four (4) practicing artist who would be interested in receiving this training. Since this is a pilot project there will be no charge for this round of training.  In the future a fee of $125 will be charged.  This unique opportunity will be a Fresno Arts Council Certificate Program that once completed will demonstrate a capacity to work in our public schools at a fee for service.


Training will be Friday, June 7th; 4 to 6 pm, and Sat. June 8th 10 am to 2 pm. 


If you would like to participate in this training please contact Lilia@fresnoartscouncil.org or call Lilia Gonzales Chavez at (559) 237-9734
