Teaching Artists

Artscope is seeking enthusiastic, highly skilled teaching artists for part-time seasonal independent contract employment. Applicants must demonstrate experience in any of the following disciplines: painting/crafts, dance, music, drama, puppetry, visual arts, or video. Applicants must be committed to working with people of all ages and backgrounds and able to collaborate with other educators.


Eligible candidates will be required to develop and implement in-class arts-integrated workshops and lesson plans. Teaching artists will use their art form as a vehicle to address specific themes of our partners, as well as the mission and core values of Artscope. We encourage applications from teaching artists personally connected to these themes as we believe the diversity of our programming should be reflected in the diversity of our teaching artists. Classroom experience is a plus.
