Job Description


Vineyard Artists is located at 430 Marrett Road, Suite 1, Lexington, MA and was founded by experienced artists and musicians. We are dedicated to enriching children’s after school time with art and music by discovering and guiding their potential artistic talents. We inspire our students to be creative thinkers, encourage them to take risks in the arts, and develop their sense of self-esteem, self-discipline and self-motivation.


We practice art integration in designing our classes: through art classes, the students also learn about other subjects such as science, history, social studies etc.


Currently, Vineyard Artists is recruiting an artist and a musician (handling music appreciation class) with the same philosophy as ours to accompany 4-12 year olds on their arts learning journey during this difficult time.


Due to Covid, all our group classes are handled remotely with only 4-6 students per class. We prefer to have someone who can potentially come into the classroom located in Lexington MA to teach in the future. However, it is not required since the virtual learning will continue even after we resume the onsite classes.

  • Class Size: 4-6 students per class (4-8 if it is onsite)


  • Student age group: 4 - 6 and 7 - 12



 


Responsibility and lesson plan



  • Design lessons based on the curriculum provided by Vineyard Artists, and provide the key content for each lesson

  • Encourage and inspire students’ creativity by providing a relaxed and fun class atmosphere

  • Demonstrate how to create art on the spot (in class), but do not limit their ability to create independently

  • Give feedback to students' work in each class, pay attention to each child's growth and room for improvement

  • Establish a healthy communication with students and parents


*for music appreciation classes, there will be no projects created.
 


Qualifications



  • B.A. in art education or fine arts. Master degree preferred

  • ability to teach in both English and Mandarin is preferred 

  • more than one year of child education experience

  • access to car
