The Youth Art Instructor will be responsible for all youth visual arts classes which occur during our regular semester class and summer camp sessions, including planning age appropriate art projects inspired by our weekly camp, coordinating set up and clean up of all art supplies on a daily basis, and teaching students/campers how to complete the designed project.  Art lessons for the Advanced Teen Art Academy should challenge these older, dedicated students and help them to refine their techniques and expand their self-expression. Younger kids' art classes should include a thoughtful progression of activities that build their artistic skill sets. Summer camp projects should be accessible to kids with a full range of artistic abilities, to minimize their frustration and above all encourage their love of the arts. You will also be responsible for maintaining an inventory of supplies within a budget, communicating when supplies need to be purchased, and general supervision of children.
