Be a SmArts Teaching Artist

If you are an artist who enjoys the flexibility of creating your own schedule, working with youth and having an alternative income stream, then being a SmArts Teaching artist may be a good fit for you.  SmArts arts-focused learning residencies occur during school hours and are created by the artist and classroom teacher.  Residencies serve grades 1st – 12th and vary in length and academic focus. 

Our artist roster includes dance, theater, music, poetry and visual art.
