Teaching Artists

Working in prison as a teaching artist requires a special set of skills and experience, as well as maturity, compassion, discipline and persistence. We seek teaching artists with advanced arts training and experience as educators, especially in underserved communities. Because prisons tend to be in remote areas, having access to transportation is helpful.


Becoming an RTA teaching artist is not a casual process. Criminal background checks, orientation, fingerprinting and TB tests are required by New York State. These complex logistics make RTA unsuitable as a term project or internship.
 

Still interested?  Wonderful!
