ADJUNCT INSTRUCTORS WANTED
The Southwest School of Art is hiring on-call teaching artist (visual) to teach and manage the operational details of education programs, workshops and classes. We currently have opportunities for teaching artists to work with diverse students at school sites and community centers. A majority of our teaching opportunities are held on a campus and after school between the hours of 3:30 – 6:00 p.m. We have strong support and partnership with school site managers, teachers, counselors and principals who are eager to meet our teaching artists! At each site, you will represent the SSA and share not only your knowledge about the visual arts but also knowledge about opportunities we offer such as our scholarship programs, Saturday Morning Discovery and Summer Art Studios. The operational details teachers will be responsible for include: setting up the classroom/space you will be working, cleaning up after class, preparing and organizing supplies needed for your class as well as documenting and evaluating how your class was successful. The MAPs our teachers participate in are meant to be engaging, interactive and at times, a learning opportunity for students who may not have ever had an arts learning experience before. There are many opportunities to participate in other education programs that represent the SSA throughout the year as well.
Available weekday afternoons (M-F) between the hours of 3:00 – 6:00 p.m.
Degree in Art, Art History or Education is preferred (we may consider experience and/or students who are pursuing these degrees and have a strong visual arts background)
Flexibility to work with multiple sites and for varying degrees of time (some of our campuses have three to six month contracts, some can only afford programs for a month)
Personable, outgoing and enthusiastic
Reliable, responsible, organized and desire to learn and be a team player
Must be able to stand on his/her feet for extended periods of time and to lift 25 pounds
Loves kids and loves teaching (experience with Elementary, Middle school a plus!)

The teaching schedule will begin in September. We are interviewing and hiring NOW! We accept applications for these positions on a rolling basis throughout the year. If you are interested in applying for a MAP teaching artist position please send your cover letter, resume and sample lesson plan to:
