Job Description

At Brushstrokes Studio Summer Camps, we teach young artists how to do a wide variety of art projects across many mediums including: pottery painting, sculpting with clay, warm glass/glass fusing, mosaic making, watercolor painting, and collage. Our instructors prep and implement each project by setting up materials, giving verbal instructions, demonstrating techniques, and assisting campers one-on-one with their artwork.  Instructors also work with Counselors in Training (CITs) and campers to keep the classroom clean and orderly.  During free time, instructors facilitate (and are welcome to participate in) games with the campers in order to get out extra energy and help maintain a positive, inclusive and creative classroom.  Teaching at Camp Brushstrokes is a great chance to develop leadership skills during the long summer ahead. It is also a great foray into the field of Arts Education and to nurture the playful, creative spirit that makes the Bay Area such a beautiful and inspiring place to live.
