EPIC Teacher Application
RedLine's EPIC Arts program began in January 2010. EPIC Arts provides a platform for RedLine Resident Artists to work in collaboration with educators from Denver area K-12 schools to implement an experiential curriculum that creates a body of artwork through a lens of contemporary social justice. Through the partnership, artist and educator team up to create a new way of delivering instruction that combines artistic practice with the instructional and learning needs of the teacher and her/his students.
EPIC Arts empowers young people to become active interpreters within their own distinctive art practice alongside a professional artist both in and outside of the classroom. The art making process and resulting artwork becomes a medium through which young people can hone their critical thinking, communication and collaboration skills and express their unique perspective and ideas about today's world. Students will also have the opportunity to take part in an EPIC Youth Exhibit in RedLine's Project Space, where they can see their work displayed in a professional space, view other students' work and discuss their ideas with the community. EPIC Youth Exhibits occur in December and May-- at the end of each semester.
If interested in becoming an EPIC teacher, please fill out the following form and contact JC Futrell (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions.
