Oklahoma Contemporary

Gallery Educators

Gallery Educators are part of a cohort of educators who engage a diverse range of Oklahoma Contemporary visitors and guests through Daily Public Tours, Guided Visits, Second Saturday, Spotlight Talks and K-12 Group Visits. Through a comprehensive training provided by Oklahoma Contemporary, Gallery Educators gain the skills, language and content expertise to support interactive engagement with the public.

Gallery Educators are responsible for completing supplementary research on artists and artworks and facilitating interactive conversations about contemporary art in a gallery setting. Educators work both independently and as a team with the Education and Public Programs department to develop and prepare resources and materials that shape people’s understanding of contemporary art with a focus on learner-centered, inquiry-based methods.

We welcome Gallery Educators from a variety of backgrounds including practicing artists, teaching artists, university faculty, community-based educators, museum educators and those with expertise working with audiences with special needs.
