Seed Art Share seeks Teaching Artists

Posted by: Renee Wimberley

Type: Contract

About Seed Art Share

Seed Art Share was originally incorporated as Seed Raleigh Arts Community in 2010 with the goal of creating space for Triangle artists to gather, grow their crafts, and serve one another in our local arts community.  We offer our “Share the Show” family-inclusion program which presents onsite drama programs for children of patrons and performers attending or rehearsing local productions. In 2013, we transitioned to Seed Art Share, LLC, expanded our “Share the Show” program, and launched our “Smart Arts” arts-integration theatre classes and workshops for homeschool and community organizations.  In 2014 we began developing our own original productions, in site-specific locations throughout the Triangle. Our “Smart Arts” workshops explore theatre skills and reinforce history, geography, STEAM concepts, and literature.

In 2017 we reincorporated as Seed Art Share, Inc. and in 2019, received our 501c3 non-profit status. During the 2020-2021 school year offered ten weekly theatre classes for our community partners at Oak City Academy and Garner Area Homeschoolers. In the coming 2021-2022 school year we expect to offer more classes than ever before thanks to new and growing partnerships with The Homeschool Experience, Homeschoolers of Holly Springs, and Pure Life Theatre, to name a few.
