Volunteer Opportunity! Teaching Artist Apprentices (Summer)

Volunteer Opportunity! Teaching Artist Apprentices (Summer)

This Deadline Expired: Tuesday, June 1, 2021

Main Line Arts Center is seeking teaching artists for a stipend-based volunteer Summer Camp program!

Apprenticeships are tailored to help students meet goals while building teaching skills and developing their portfolios. During summer camps, apprentices will work with teaching artists to provide guidance to young students, learn about classroom management and curriculum. For those looking to enrich their portfolios, one-on-one time with teaching artist mentors will provide constructive feedback about your body of artwork.

About Camp:
All apprenticeships happen during summer camp. Campers ages 5-12 learn fundamentals of painting, drawing, ceramics, printmaking, fiber arts, jewelry and metals. Campers develop skills in collaboration, critical thinking, problem-solving, and self-expression. At the end of each week, campers display their artwork for family and friends.

Stuart Lehrman's  practice involves dialogue between order and chaos. Constantly experimenting with the physical properties of paint,  between adding and subtracting, making and unmaking, working to a place where he loses control of the painting and then struggling back to achieve the right balance between wild spontaneity and emotional restraint.

Through abstract geometric paintings, Philadelphia artist Melinda Steffy translates music into color patterns, exploring ideas of translation, information and data, and how music weaves throughout human experience. Melinda Steffy’s RUINATION DAY series (acrylic on wood panel) deconstructs folk and blues songs that reference the date April 14, which is when Lincoln was shot, the Titanic hit the iceberg, and the Black Sunday dust storm devastated the Midwest. Melinda Steffy’s BACH PROJECT series (watercolor on paper) converts classical music by J.S. Bach and Bela Bartok into grids and pie charts. Rather than hear one note after the other through time, the paintings show all of the notes and rhythms simultaneously on one visual plane.
