Cambridge Center for Adult Education, located in Harvard Square, is currently seeking part-time instructors to teach a variety of classes relating to visual arts & crafts classes for adults, beginning in June, 2023. CCAE is one of the most wide-ranging and innovative communities of adult learners in the country. CCAE provides affordable education to all members of the community and is a welcoming place committed to experiential, lifelong, face-to-face learning that is distinguished by students and faculty of different racial, ethnic, sexual orientation, religious, and economic backgrounds. CCAE has been a home to curious people pursuing knowledge for 150 years and prides itself on being a place to grow, create and thrive. CCAE is currently offering both in-person and online classes.
Our classes vary in length, depending on the subject matter. Some classes are one-time sessions, others are held once a week for nine sessions. CCAE has four terms per year; each class is generally scheduled 2-4 times per year. The length and times of your classes will be decided upon by you and your program director.
We are looking to add several new and exciting classes to our curriculum and are open to collaborating with qualified individuals to design new classes pertaining to their expertise and interests. The list below includes some examples of the types of classes we are seeking to introduce into our program:
