Teaching Fellowship Artreach has enabled a first time opportunity for young people in Shelter Homes. Through our one year Teaching Fellowship Programme an artist will teach an intensive foundation program to a group of older children (aged 14 to 18) from an NGO who have an interest in art. The artist offers the children a comprehensive experience of art education encompassing diverse mediums, techniques, styles and histories. The children visit museums and higher learning centres and the program culminates in an exhibition, which is accompanied with a catalogue. Beyond the teaching of technical skills and insight into art history and aesthetics, the artist encourages the children to use art as a tool for the critical exploration of the world, and seeks to cultivate their imaginative, creative and reflective skills, and encourage each of them to find an individual expressive voice.
The fellowship is supported by the Kiran Nadar Museum of Art
The Fellowship is an annual funded programme where artists apply through an Open Call and are selected through an interview and trial workshop. Applications CLOSED for the third fellowship. For details write to firstname.lastname@example.org
Artroom For the alumni of our Teaching Fellowship - thus far from Aman Biradari Homes (2015-16) and Udayan Care (2016-17) - we have instituted monthly workshops at Anandgram, Sanskriti Kendra. On the second saturday of every month our young artists work with a volunteer artist to maintain and further their practice exploring modes of expression.
For further information and to volunteer to lead a workshop please write to our Programme Office at email@example.com
Express Teaching Fellowship In 2017 we initiated a collaboration with Nari Gunjan to work with the girls of the Musahar community in Bihar. Four times a year we facilitate intensive art engagement residencies led by artists for the girls in the homes in Patna and Bodhgaya. The objectives are similar to our fellowship programme - to expose young people to a variety of mediums, techniques, art histories, institutions and guide them through a path of artistic exploration and critical self-expression.
