Art Club Lead Artist/ Tutor

Friction Arts are on a quest to find the right Lead Artist/ Tutor to work with an inspiring group of young people with different needs, abilities and SEN. Our Art Club is a free, weekly term-time Club, which supports young people aged 8-18 yrs old to explore their culture, work and spend time with their alternative peer group and develop their artistic skills. This Lead Artist/ Tutor will already have experience in working with young people in the Arts, and will also be excited to develop their skills and ideas in culturally responsive, participant-led workshops.

Hosted by Friction Arts, we are seeking a practitioner with the experience of supporting young people to express themselves and their worlds through the prism of the Arts. 

This Lead Artist/ Tutor will be working alongside artists from our wider team as well as managing a dedicated Art Club team, many of whom are former Art Club members.
