Pitt County Arts Council at Emerge – Local Teaching Artist, Photography Program

 
The Pitt County Arts Council at Emerge is looking for an instructor to teach photography to children living with cancer as a part of Pablove Shutterbugs – a new facet of their Art is Good Medicine Program. The Pitt County Arts Council at Emerge won a grant from Livestrong in April 2014 to replicate Pablove Shutterbugs in Greenville, NC.

Pablove Shutterbugs, a program of The Pablove Foundation, teaches children living with cancer to develop their creative voice through the art of photography. In an educational setting, the five-­‐week program instructs children to tell their story through photographs using perspective, light, composition, and technique. Our Pablove Shutterbugs students are taught basic principles of photography while learning on digital point-­‐and-­‐shoot cameras provided by Pablove, and reflect on their work. The cameras are theirs to keep at the end of the course.

Headquartered in Los Angeles, the Pablove Shutterbugs program is expanding nationally through the LIVESTRONG Foundation Community Impact Project (CIP), which replicates programs that have demonstrated success in supporting people affected by cancer within one city, state or region of the United States. The Pablove Foundation is partnering with hospitals and art centers such as the Pitt County Arts Council at Emerge

To bring the power of photography to children living with cancer in their community. Our goal is to improve the quality of life for children living with cancer by forming a community of learners, introducing them to a new art form, and connecting them to creative spaces in their hometown. Nationwide, classes take places in facilities such as art galleries, professional photography studios, museums, and other cultural venues. Working with the Pitt County Arts Council at Emerge and the Pablove Shutterbugs staff in Los Angeles, the Local Teaching Artist will administer, facilitate, and instruct students in photography following the Pablove Shutterbugs curriculum.

A hallmark of Pablove Shutterbugs is their flexibility and commitment to learning; should children not feel well enough to come to class, they have the option of receiving instruction at their home or bedside at the hospital.

The role of the Local Teaching Artist in this project will be:

  1. Participate in virtual or in-­‐person training sessions to learn the curriculum, instructional methods, and age-­‐appropriate strategies in working with children living with cancer.
  2. Oversee each class to ensure its success. Perform administrative duties including downloading photos, preparing materials, delegating tasks, etc.
  3. Track student progress, attendance, and correspond with participating families prior to, during, and immediately after the program.
  4. If needed, work with the local hospital and national office to secure a creative learning space outside of the hospital for children to attend class.
  5. Recruit and train three to four volunteers who will act as teaching assistants.
  6. Instruct five classes in accordance with the Pablove Shutterbugs curriculum for children living with cancer (ages 6-­‐18).
  7. Administer evaluation tools to monitor the quality of the program.
  8. Review student work and select photos for a student exhibition (Gallery Show) to be presented to partner hospital, children, their families, and the local community.
  9. Work with national office to troubleshoot issues, report progress, engage in on-­‐ going learning, and participate in a learning community with other local teaching artists.

Local Teaching Artists are expected to use their own computers and cover their own cost of travel to and from the program site. The national office will provide all cameras (point-­‐and-­‐shoot), supplies and training. The teaching artist will receive a camera to use as a model camera while teaching class that will be returned to Pablove at the end of the program.

To Apply

  1. Current resume and cover letter
  2. Statement answering the following questions: Why are you a good fit for the program? When working with students, please describe strategies that you might employ to creatively engage them in learning photography. How might you approach the issue of working with kids of differing ages learning side by side in the same space?
  3. 7-­‐10 work samples detailing your best work in the photographic arts.
  4. Please indicate the region that you are applying for at the top of your cover letter and in the subject line of your email.
