Expectations towards the artist
Artists are expected to propose a project-based collaborative art piece, preferably in the form of a large scale ceramic or painted mural that is connected to a global issue: social, economic or environmental. We are looking for non-digital, hands-on mediums that will produce a high-quality artwork suitable for external display or exhibition. This is a “full-time” position requiring the artist to be on site during school hours, Monday to Friday, 8.00am to 4.00pm. The artist will be required to work with young people, aged 6 to 10, and communicate, discuss and demonstrate their art with ease while attending sessions with Elementary students and their teachers.
