Art Instructor

Description:

 Hill House is seeking to hire an energetic, professional, and enthusiastic early childhood art instructor.

Organization

At Hill House, we believe that kids deserve the space to run, play, learn and grow. That is why we are proud to be the backyard in the city for over 2,000 families by offering safe, high quality programs, events and outreach activities that enrich the lives of families living in Boston. Every year we offer over 400 programs and classes, three summer camps and over 50 community events a year. For more information go to: www.hillhouseboston.org.

Overview

The art instructor will work with a maximum of eight children and their parents in an art room setting for 20 – 25 hours a week. The instructor will set up the room and art supplies for the session and will lead process-based activities, encouraging developmentally appropriate creativity and growth through different art mediums and projects.

The art instructor must be a nurturing, mature, and responsible individual who loves to teach art to children and is comfortable with groups of children ages 1-3 years of age in the morning while offering guidance and reassurance to their parents or caregivers as their little ones grow within the ten week session. Afterschool hours will have children up to 10-12 years old for hour long classes.


The art instructor will allow young students and parents or caregivers to experiment with everything our art room has to offer in a creative, supervised setting while also making connections within our community. This position will help families in the area respect the process of art from facilitating the first encounter with paint to encouraging the creative steps taken to complete a project on their own. The art instructor must work collaboratively with other art instructors to establish a healthy and organized classroom environment.


We are looking for instructors who will go above and beyond for our families and who will run a high quality, creative program. To see more about the classes we offer, check out our fall guide here http://www.hillhouseboston.org/AssetFactory.aspx?vid=72509&dam=1

Qualifications:

  • Current CPR, First Aid, and AED certification is preferred.
  • At least 2 years of professional experience working with children and families in an art room setting.
  • Ability to interact with parents in a consistently positive manner.
