Deadline: October 22nd, 5pm
 

Meeting ID: 353 875 9930

The Oxy Arts Collaborate Workshop will bring a teaching artist, Oxy students, and youth from the neighboring Highland Park school district together in creative collaboration. During the first six weeks of the semester, Oxy students will learn core arts education and public engagement pedagogy. They will work with lead teaching artist Patricia Yossen and collaborate in teaching teams to develop curriculum. In the following 6 weeks of the semester, Oxy students will collaboratively lead an after school art workshop for EITHER elementary or middle school youth, culminating in a final public presentation. The Collaborate course will be remote in the Spring - your classes with Professor Yossen as well as the after school art classes you lead will be over Zoom and video. 

This semester, we are offering two different Collaborate classes - one for teaching middle school youth in grades 6-8 and one for teaching elementary youth in grades 4/5. Class times for the two courses are included below: 

Collaborate - Middle School 
Wednesdays, 4 - 6pm
Office hours: Mondays, 4 - 5pm 

Collaborate - Elementary School  
Thursdays, 4 - 6pm
Office hours: Mondays, 5 - 6pm

You are expected to commit four hours per week outside of class time for a 2-unit course. Office hours account for a portion of these hours, but you will be expected to use the additional time to work with your teaching team, develop your lesson plans and prepare for your classes. During the following 6 weeks, you will be leading your own class during the 4-6pm class time. It is a requirement of this course that you can attend office hours weekly and have time to prep during the week. 

This course provides Oxy students with the opportunity to:
1. think outside the box in collaboration with a professional teaching artist in the creation of a new artistic practice.
2. experience working as a teaching team to develop lesson plans and experience communicating ideas into artistic practice. 
3. leave the course with a completed, original curriculum, a teaching philosophy, professional teaching experience on their resumes and tools to apply for teaching positions in the future. 
4. provide community youth with free and creative learning opportunities in the arts, and the opportunity to be mentored by students in higher education.
5. learn how to plan, install and present a public art showcase of their collaborative work, and to share what they have accomplished with their family, friends, and neighbors.

Course enrollment is subject to completion of application and approval by Oxy Arts. Upon approval by Oxy Arts, an enrollment waiver will allow you to complete enrollment into the course. Questions? Email Frankie Fleming at ffleming@oxy.edu

ONLINE APPLICATION DEADLINE IS October 22nd. YOU WILL BE NOTIFIED IF YOU WERE ACCEPTED INTO THE CLASS BEFORE REGISTRATION WEEK. 

The Oxy Arts Collaborate program is made possible by the generous support of the Kathryn Caine Wanlass Charitable Foundation and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
