Arts Educators Wanted!

We’re looking for arts educators for our AIM Magazine!

Twice a year, the Mississauga Arts Council (MAC) creates the AIM for Education Magazine to help bring teachers information about the vibrant artistic programming offered by local artists and arts organizations. These dynamic artists offer a wide range of programming including theatre workshops, exciting musical concerts, mural paintings, Shakespearean performances, and more!

The AIM Magazine is distributed to local teachers and educator who are interested in bringing artists into the classroom.

Please include information about themes, schedules, location and ages for students.
