KMAC TEACHING ARTISTS
Interested in becoming a Teaching Artist for KMAC Museum?
KMAC Museum’s mission to connect people with art and creative practice depends on committed teaching artists: artists who are passionate about sharing creativity and skills with others. KMAC teaching artists may visit schools or other groups to teach short residencies of one, three, or five days. The residencies involve introducing groups (youth or adults) to an art medium, practice, or creative process and working with the group, step-by-step, to make artwork of their own. Opportunities to teach at KMAC camps or adult workshops are also a possibility.
We are looking for artists who:
>> Have experience working with youth
>> Have experience working with a range of art media. Knowledge in one or more of the following media is a plus: clay, wood, printmaking, fiber, mosaics, murals, basketry, animation, stone, or metal.
>> Have excellent organizational and planning skills
>> Enjoy leading and are comfortable managing groups of people
>> Can plan lessons and anticipate art supply needs
>> Can teach artistic processes and encourage freedom in creation
All teaching artist positions are paid, with the pay rate depending on the type of program.
The KMAC Educational Department will be holding informational sessions on Monday April 15th from 1-2pm and Tuesday April 16th from 4-5pm. Please let us know if and when you would like to attend by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
