Q. Is this a full-time position?
Our Teaching Artists work on part-time contracts. Teachers can lead one class or event or can take on as many as they would like. Our current teachers work between 2-10 hours a week during our class semesters.
Q. What are the qualifications to be a Teaching Artist?
Many of our teachers have degrees in education or in the field that they would like to teach. Degrees will always help but are not a requirement to become a Teaching Artist. The primary qualifications include experience in building engaging lesson plans, leading prior classes or workshops, and a passion for inspiring students.
Q. Do teachers need to follow a strict curriculum?
Arts@302 is not attached to any school district and has the luxury of not having to follow strict guidelines in our classes. We hire teachers that are well equipped to build their own engaging lesson plans that both fit their style and allow students to create and explore to the best of their ability. We want our teachers to focus on the most important thing: teaching!
Q. When do classes meet?
Our classes primarily meet once a week over a six-week period. We also offer weekend workshops. These one time classes can meet on a Friday evening and Saturday afternoon or just a Saturday afternoon.
Q. What is the pay?
Teaching Artists are paid $30/hr for instructional time through W9 contract.
