Teacher Fellowship Program | Intuit: The Center for Intuitive and Outsider Art

Through lectures, visits with outsider artists, tours of outsider art collections and environments, and access to Intuit's Study Center, teachers gain the necessary background, tools, materials, and information on how to integrate teachings about intuitive and outsider art into their curriculum.
Teacher Fellowship Program | Intuit: The Center for Intuitive and Outsider Art

i recently accepted a teaching position for the fall for high school architecture. in previous posts, i've written about how the CPS in partnership with the chicago architecture foundation is revamping its old school architectural drafting curriculum for more of a holistic, relevant and sustainable architecture curriculum. i think it is an exciting alternative to working in a firm. i've been on several interviews for firms. this pays more, has a shorter work day, summers and the same school holidays that my children will have off and i get to inspire the next generation of architects...and expand their conception of architecture. incidentally, i think catching people before they get to college is part of reconciling the gross underrepresentation of architects of color. The school has every possible computer program you could imagine so worst case scenario, i'm coming out knowing much more about cad, and 3-d modeling than i ever did because i have to teach it! not to mention it keeps my work neighborhood based and keyed into real life issues. a perfect connection between my past work in youth development and education in design.

anyhoo...this intuit teacher fellowship seems like something that could explore artists and untrained self builders a.k.a. "outsider architecture" too. i think i will apply.
