Art Instructors – MAM’s Yard School of Art

 

MAM welcomes interested artist/educators to submit proposals for new and/or existing classes or workshops in studio art, ceramics, or digital media. To apply, please provide resume, an illustrated portfolio of your teaching including two sample lesson plans teaching to the target audience you are interested teaching at MAM, three professional references that reflect your teaching practices, and images of your own artwork if a practicing artist. All applications must be submitted electronically to yardschool@montclairartmuseum.org. Proposals will be reviewed by the Education Director upon the following variables: interest and availability of student base, compatibility with curriculum and exhibitions, and the quality and thoroughness of the proposal.
