FILIPINX TEACHING ARTIST FELLOWSHIP


The Filipinx Teaching Artist Fellowship (FTAF) provides free studio workspace to a Filipinx artist in exchange for being an integral part of Root Division’s Studios Program. In large part, the commitment involves teaching classes one to two afternoons per week at Bessie Carmichael Elementary School and the Filipino Education Center (FEC), an after school program for newcomer children who have recently emigrated to San Francisco.

Working as a teaching-artist in residence for the full school year, the FTAF incorporates monthly themes from the BCE/FEC cultural calendar into projects, which guide students in discussions, story-telling, and art-making around in their transition to a new home in the U.S. Instruction in the program is in Tagalog and English, so the FTAF is fluent in both languages.
