Summer Teaching Assistant: Ages 5-11


The Brookline Arts Center (BAC) is seeking two Summer Teaching Assistants to work with ages 5-11 during our Summer ArtVentures program.

The BAC’s popular ArtVentures program for children blends fun with learning through a balance of structured projects, creative expression and play. We promote artistic exploration while developing technique and critical-thinking skills. Each week’s theme is explored through a variety of mediums and imaginative projects. Students have three breaks during the day to explore our beautiful park, play on the connecting playground or participate in a game with their peers. Our weekly programs culminate in an art show designed to showcase and celebrate each child’s artistic accomplishments.

Classes meet from 9:00am-4:00pm with a one hour lunch break for children and two snack breaks. Early drop-off is available at 8:00am and late pick-up is available until 5:30pm. One teaching assistant position is needed from 7:45am-4:15pm and one teaching assistant is needed from 9:00am-5:30pm each day. Teaching assistants will have a 30-minute lunch break.

Teaching Assistants will be responsible for:

· Supporting the lead teacher in the classroom.

· Greeting children and families.

· Interacting with and engaging children in activities.

· Understanding the plan for the class so that you can help, step in, foster children’s engagement, etc.
