Visual and Performing Arts Education Lecturer
University of California Los Angeles UCLA, School of the Arts and Architecture
United States


The Visual and Performing Arts Education Program (VAPAE) in the UCLA School of the Arts and Architecture offers an interdisciplinary and interdepartmental series of courses designed to introduce undergraduates to the key issues and methodologies in the field of arts education for multiple publics and to a broad range of possible career paths including K-12 teaching, museum education, socially-engaged arts practice, creative arts therapies, teaching artist and arts advocacy.

VAPAE is creating a pool of candidates for potential part-time teaching positions in arts education, during the academic year, as needed.

Applicants may submit course proposals and any relevant syllabi to be considered to teach the core Arts Education Teaching Sequence (AETS), a sequence of courses that guide UCLA undergraduate students from educational theory into practice.

The AETS is an essential component of the VAPAE minor and a launching pad for a professional teaching artist career. The sequence is comprised of three courses (Arts Ed M102, M192, M192SL) in which selected undergraduates explore core issues in arts education, creative process, and educational/ social justice. Students are then assigned to K-12 classrooms in the Los Angeles area, where they first observe and then implement an original 8-week arts-based unit plan under the supervision of a credentialed guiding teacher. AETS courses are offered each year, and students may begin the sequential coursework in the fall or spring quarters.
