Call for Teaching Artist

Arts Place is looking for artist instructors for our Summer 2022 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, theater performance, painting, dance, sculpture and so much more. Classes run from early June through the end of July. The classes are hosted in multiple different locations throughout our service area.

We are looking for enthusiastic, creative, and accomplished artist instructors who have a passion for sharing their craft with children aged 6-14. Our teaching artists generally have at least a four-year degree in the arts, but the significant experience will be considered. The selected candidates will have sizable input with the Arts in the Parks coordinator on the community arts projects and workshop curriculum. We are seeking flexible instructors, 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. Our 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 our mission to foster the creative spirit in anyone.

Teaching artists typically earn $550 to $1,000 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 meals and travel to and from the area.

To apply, please send a resume, 10 samples of your work, 3 class samples or community project ideas, and a letter of interest to kanderson@artsland.org by January 23, 2022. To inquire about positions and the program before applying, contact Kimberly Anderson at (270) 726-4809 ext. 230 or at kanderson@artsland.org.
