September 24, 2021 (Moscow, Idaho) —
The City of Moscow and the Moscow Arts Commission are seeking up to two arts educators or teams to create National Core Arts Standards-aligned curricula for the MACtivities Toolbox program.
Arts education is a key component of the Moscow Arts Commission’s service to the community. The MACtivities program, with features such as the MACtivities Toolbox, fosters enthusiasm for the creative process as well as focused approaches to art elements and principles. These lessons weave art-making strategies into the fabric of the community’s daily life.
If selected, the arts educator or team will:
- Complete a contract with the City of Moscow stipulating project timeline, scope of work, and payment schedule.
- Write copy for a guidebook and lessons for age groups 5-7, 8-12, and 13+.
- Provide detailed standards alignment for each lesson.
- Recommend a set of materials to support lessons for all age groups, including links to specific products and vendors whenever possible.
The honorarium for each selected arts educator or team is $600 and will be paid upon completion of the full scope of work. The City of Moscow Arts Department will be responsible for design, printing costs and purchase of the required art supplies.
Interested educators are required to complete an online request for proposal process via the City of Moscow’s Submittable website: https://bit.ly/2021mactivitieseducatorrfq
. The deadline for submissions is Oct. 29 at 5 p.m.

The MACtivities Toolbox was created during 2020 as a way to connect with community and creativity during a time of social distancing. The program provides art supply and curriculum toolboxes to community members free-of-charge. Lessons included are designed for three different age groups and provide space for creative inquiry while maintaining alignment with National Core Art Standards.
