Artist Applications: 
Teaching Artists and Assistants

ART 180 is always looking for new artists interested in being part of the work we do in our collective. Artists can work as teaching artists leading one of our youth art experiences–workshops, artist studios, or residencies–or by being a participating artist in one of our public art events–The Easel, Atlas Holiday Market, or First Friday exhibitions.


Teaching artists are hired to either lead or assist in one of our youth art experiences, and are compensated for time spent training, planning, in the classroom, and fun events.

Teaching artists develop and implement curriculum to inspire and challenge youth, encouraging each participant to learn and grow. Assistants provide support for a weekly set of structured art activities as defined by the teaching artist. The most successful experiences are those where teaching artists are consistent, enthusiastic and deeply passionate about youth, art, and the Richmond community. 

Complete the application below to let us know where your interest lies! And feel free to reach out with any questions about where you fit into our collective. For more information, email Dallas Roquemore, ART 180 Program Manager, at and Maurice Leoni-Osion, Program Director, at
