Teaching Artist Opportunities
Work with PVA!
The PVA Magnet program offers arts students the opportunity to build their artistic skill. The program is designed to engage students in focused arts instruction with highly qualified teachers and professional artists to foster aesthetic and critical thinking, creative inquiry, and artistic excellence. During extended day instruction, students from all arts primes have the chance to further refine their craft in small group instruction while expanding their creative lens through collaboration, community engagement, and multiple performance avenues.
