Volunteer Opportunity! Teaching Artist Apprentices (Summer)
deadline: 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.
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.
