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.

The beauty of nature, the grit of the city; an angry song and a positive attitude. It’s the contrast of our surroundings and the complexity of everyday life that inspires the artwork of Jodi Cachia.

My work can be traced back to my own personal history and experiences, yet rather than being personal symbols, it is a product of a collective memory that I share with the viewer.

My work is primarily in oils and focuses on urban street scenes and still life settings made up of vintage housewares and toys.  I am interested in all things old as I believe they have the most interesting stories to tell.  Buildings and objects from the past both bring back memories for those who have previously interacted with them, and discovery to those seeing them for the first time.  I work in a contemporary realist style, looking to bring to attention the beautiful design elements that already exist in the subjects that I paint.
