Art Educator Summer Institute Instructor: Printmaking Department

Description:

Montserrat College of Art is seeking an instructor with an undergraduate degree, teaching certification and/or equivalent professional experience to teach Print Workshop in our Summer Art Educator Institute program.


The week-long summer residential Art Educator Institute program (June 27 - July 1, 2021) is designed for art educators teaching grades K through 12, and community college art educators. Our Summer Institute immerses art educators from across the country by creating an artist-in-residence experience for educators to develop their own studio practice and build new skills that they can bring back to their classrooms.


The Print Workshop class(es) will meet for three hours (9am-12pm and/or 1pm-4pm) from June 28th through July 1st throughout the program. While we plan to run one section of this class, if enrollment allows we will consider adding a second option.


This week-long workshop will focus on printmaking that can be adapted to most art rooms with a printing press. Using Lexan plates, we will explore water soluble oil based inks for a range of monoprint and dry point techniques. To incorporate digital work, we will experiment with photo based polyester plates. Throughout the week, we will focus on greener solutions to printmaking processes that have been traditionally solvent based. Have your own projects to work on, the print studio will be available for independent projects throughout the program.
Qualifications:

Bachelor’s degree is required. Prior teaching experience preferred. Strong leadership, oral and written communication skills.

How To Apply:
Please submit a CV, including professional accomplishments and teaching experience, a sample of 5 recent works of art and a list of three references. to: Human Resources department at Montserrat College of Art, hr@montserrat.edu, with the subject line “Art Educator Print”. To be assured of full consideration please apply by April 10, 2021.
