Urban School of San Francisco seeks an energetic and enthusiastic part-time visual arts teacher to teach two Drawing/Mixed Media courses spanning the Fall and Winter Terms of 2021-22. We seek an experienced teacher with an extensive background working two-dimensionally with a range of drawing media to teach both technical skills and creative thinking in their curriculum.
The ideal candidate will have the capacity to engage both traditional and contemporary modalities to give students an experience of an expanded definition of drawing while introducing students to a diverse range of artists working across different media and various periods of art history. We ask students to ponder what drawing has been in the past and to become innovators in crafting what it can be now. Previous experience with secondary school students is desirable; a sense of adventure and enthusiasm for working with adolescents is essential.
All art classes are taught in longer, studio-style periods in sessions that last twelve weeks. Urban School offers a broad selection of art classes and ample opportunities for students and teachers to explore the San Francisco arts community through field trips. Art facilities in the school are spacious and well equipped.
Urban School strives to ignite a passion for learning and to inspire its students to become self-motivated, lifelong participants in their education and active citizens in their communities.
