PCA School: Child, Teen & Family Teaching Artist - Ceramics
PCA is hiring an artist to teach ceramics to children, teens and families. Opportunities are on an on-going basis beginning this winter, with many more opportunities come summer. PCA instructors must share PCA’s approach to arts education and art making, which emphasizes the balance between process and product. This means that our instructors impart to students the importance of the creative journey and not just the final outcome. All artists are independent contractors; this is not a part-time position.
Bachelor's Degree is preferred and at least one year of teaching experience in the medium is required. The candidate must have knowledge of ceramics techniques, processes and materials including glazing and firing in various forms including gas, electric, soda and raku. The candidate must also be well versed in contemporary art practices, arts education and art history.
To apply for this position send cover letter, resume and three images of your personal work to: Rachael Cooper, Children’s Program Manager & Camp Supervisor at rcooper[a]pittsburgharts.org.
