Teaching artists keep the arts alive! Teaching artists are practicing, professional artists who have dual careers as educators. They come from every artistic field and work in many settings. The teaching artists play an integral role in the fabric of the BAI, the community, provide high-quality, creative, lifelong learning experiences to people of all ages and abilities. Our mission is to connect artists with opportunities to engage the community in making art. In doing so, the BAI is always looking for the right fit and to keep it affordable for the students. With your class fee, we create an open art space for the community and support our working artists. If you are interested in teaching an art class and would like to join us, please email our programs manager, Glenna Smith at Glenna.Smith@borregoartinstitute.org.
