Call for Artist Instructors
Arts Place is looking for artist instructors for their Summer 2018 Arts in the Parks program. Arts in the Parks works with children in rural communities across East Central Indiana and West Central Ohio to introduce them to the arts and foster their creativity. Skills taught in past years include ceramics, fiber art, poetry, theatre performance, puppetry, dance, sculpture and so much more. Classes run from early June through the end of July at approximately 15 different sites throughout our service area.
They are looking for enthusiastic, creative, and accomplished artist instructors who have a passion for sharing their craft with children aged 6-14. Their teaching artists generally have at least a four-year degree in the arts, but significant experience will also be considered. The selected candidates will have sizable input with the Arts in the Parks coordinator on the community arts projects and workshop curriculum. They are seeking instructors who are flexible, love working with children of all ages, can teach art in new and interesting ways, and are passionate about community building.
Teaching artists will be contracted for one to two week residencies. Their artists are placed with compatible local families in pleasant surroundings. This is an important part of our residency experience as local families assist the teaching artist in making meaningful connections to the community.
Arts Place is a rural arts council that operates arts centers in Portland, Indiana, Hartford City, Indiana and St. Mary’s, Ohio. It is their mission to foster the creative spirit in anyone.
To apply, please send a resume, 10 samples of your work, 3 class samples or community project ideas, and a letter of interest to firstname.lastname@example.org by February 4th, 2018. To inquire about positions and the program prior to applying, contact Kimberly Anderson at (270) 726-4809 ext. 230 or at email@example.com.
Teaching artists typically earn $550 to $1,200 per week based on training, experience, and demand. Supplies are provided for classes and teaching artists are reimbursed for mileage between class sites. Teaching artists are responsible for their own meals and travel to and from the area.
