The Texas Cultural Trust is looking for an Arts Education Program Intern. This intern will work with the Program Specialist, Carrie Williams. The position will focus on the Trust’s arts education program, the Arts and Digital Literacy Initiative. This intern will also assist with research and outreach on the impact of the arts on Texas’ children and economy.
About the Arts and Digital Literacy Initiative:
The Arts and Digital Literacy Initiative, which bridges fine arts education and technology, is a program of the Texas Cultural Trust in collaboration with the University of Texas at Austin College of Fine Arts. The initiative is a project-based, fine arts curriculum for high school students that establishes the connection between traditional fine arts education and digital media. Digital literacy is the future of communication and commerce and creates learning experiences that develop students' capacities for critical thinking, creativity, imagination, and innovation. The courses are based on a combined set of fine arts and technology standards, resulting in arts instruction that is rigorous and designed to specifically develop student’s media literacy, providing integrated relevant skills that will prepare them for the 21st century workplace. The State Board of Education approved the new Fine Arts TEKS which include the Trust’s Arts and Digital Literacy Curricula (Art and Media Communications I & II, Music and Media Communications I & II, Theater and Media Communications I & II, Dance and Media Communications I & II). All of these courses can be offered as a fine arts credit. Currently, all Texas high school students are required to have one fine arts credit for graduation.
