Prairie Music & Arts in Sun Prairie is seeking creative teaching artists to join our team for the 2023-2024 School-year. Weekly program openings include elementary general music, visual arts, theater, ukulele, and hip-hop elements such as music production, songwriting, dance, graffiti/mural art, and spoken word; additional cultural artists are encouraged to apply.
Qualified applicants will demonstrate a commitment to youth development, strong communication skills, professional responsibility, a belief in diversity, equity, inclusion and collaboration, and artistic mastery.
