Bring your passion for your art or craft to the culturally and historically rich town of Ipswich, MA and teach within the setting of the Ipswich Museum's main house. Our Spring session runs from mid-March to the end of May. Instructors are needed for 6 week courses and weekend workshops. In the past our programming has included oil painting, watercolor painting, photography, wire sculpture, embroidery, art history and more. We are open to new ideas and new courses but do not currently have the studio space or resources to offer arts requiring specific equipment such as ceramics or printmaking.

About this Organization:
The Ipswich Museum was originally founded in 1890 as the Ipswich Historical Society. It owns and operated the 1677 Whipple House, the 1800 Heard House and the Knight House which is a reproduction building of the 17th century used for education purposes. Both properties are filled with original architectural detail, furnishings and artifacts that give visitors a glimpse into the lives of early Ipswich residents. House tours are given seasonally and education programs are offered all year.
