Art Instructor

Hatch Art Studio - Pittsburgh, PA (30+ days ago)


We are looking for an art instructor to teach weekday daytime preschool and toddler age classes, as well as lead open studios and after school classes for school age children during the school year. An art instructor at Hatch Art Studio must have teaching experience with children ages 18 months- 10 years in a Reggio inspired environment or process based environment. You must be very comfortable with process art and creating curriculum and experiences around process art that fits within the style and aesthetic of Hatch. As an art instructor, you must be confident in your teaching abilities, be delightful and caring in nature, adept at creating lasting, heartfelt and authentic relationships with the children and families that visit the studio and very comfortable with effective “classroom” management that is in alignment with honoring each child and the creative process. Art instructors must be comfortable and happy to set up and clean up in the studio quickly and joyfully. We are looking for a super friendly team player, who is hard working and responsible and also comes to work with creative ideas and curriculum that benefit and uplift the studio as a whole. This is a part time position that has a ton of opportunity for growth, this is a year round position and is not a seasonal summer time position. If you are looking for a summer position only, you may still reach out.
