Seeking Artists to instruct Summer classes!

Center for Hmong Arts and Talent (CHAT) is calling on Artists for Art Class Proposals that will be offered to Hmong youth in the Art Saves Us (ASU) program during the Summer months in 2011. We’re seeking proposals for art classes that will challenge, develop and involve creativity, self-expression and build confidence in youth.

CHAT invites interested artists to actively participate in the development and instruction of an 11-week art course for youth. All individuals that have an interest in the arts, teaching youth, and understand the enriching benefits of art activities are encouraged to apply!

ASU is an after school program that offers free art classes to Hmong youths ages 10-20 years old as a way to immerse the youth to comprehend and explore the arts in an array of disciplines.

Classes in the past have included spoken word, dance, filmmaking, creative drama, mask making, and puppetry.

The session will be set for the beginning of June through August 2011. There will be a final showcase/exhibition at CHAT’s 10th Annual Hmong Arts and Music Festival at Sculpture Park on August 20.

Each class is two hours long, once a week, for a total of 11 weeks.

You will receive a set stipend of $500.

Supplies will be provided.

Transportation for youth will also be provided!

Please keep in mind that our schedule is planned in advanced and that you should submit materials by May 23, 2011.
