Teaching Artist & Mentor
Creativity Inspiring Conservation program

In support of the Seattle Aquarium’s mission, the Creativity Inspiring Conservation (CIC) program aims to empower high-school-aged students to create awareness of environmental issues through creative media. Professional artists will serve as teaching artists and mentors (TAMs), educating teens in their field of expertise and supporting the creative process. Teens will also be educated in a hands-on setting on environmental issues, and then challenged to create artwork that is both reflective of their personal voice and informs the greater community of conservation concerns in the Puget Sound area and beyond. Our goal is that following participation in the Creativity Inspiring Conservation program, youth will have an understanding of their impact on the community as artists and conversation activists.

CIC consists of six to eight weekly classes as well as one- to two-day workshops; all are free and open to all current high school students. CIC will resume opportunities for teens in late January/early February of 2016.

Applications will be accepted through November 30.
