Teaching Artists Wanted for Summer 2015 Program
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 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. We 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. 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 rurally oriented 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.
