Seeking Children’s Art Teachers

MMoA teachers facilitate art education for children ages 3 to 18 in our studios and galleries as well as off-site as part of the Education Department’s extensive programs to nurture creativity in the community.

Contractual teachers are sought for all programs, but particularly for week-long summer camps, outreach programs, weekend birthday parties, and after-school art classes for ages 3-12. Teachers must be able to identify learning goals and design effective art lesson plans in a variety of media, for a targeted age range. Hours vary by season and according to demand, allowing teachers a flexible schedule. MMoA teachers may teach at a frequency they prefer, ranging from a few hours per month to 20 + hours per week during busier periods.
