Teaching Artists will customize and carry out arts programming inspired by or connected to the Intrepid Museum’s history and collections. Programming will include multi-session “residencies” and one-off programs. Teaching artists will receive professional development in working with this audience, but some experience and/or familiarity with this audience is strongly preferred. Teaching artists with training and experience in visual art, music and/or movement are encouraged to apply. Hours are varied (primarily weekday), so a flexible schedule is a must.
