Theme:

Now Hiring Art Teachers for 2018 Spring Break Art Camps

Design your camp, your way.

Art Professors, please pass this along to any upper-level students or recent graduates who you think would be good candidates.

Camp Dates are Monday – Friday, March 12-16, 2018

9:00-12:00 and/or 1:00-4:00*

Camps are 3 hours a day for 5 days, and allow students to dive into a specific topic or medium and explore it in some depth over the course of the week.

One camp should be for ages 5-8 and one for ages 9-12
You can opt to teach both camps for a solid 7-hour day (you'll get paid for 7 hours) or you can just pick one or the other.

If you can't do all 5 days, you can split the days between yourself and another teacher, but you need to work together on your plan for the week so it's a cohesive experience for the kids.   
You can also team-teach together at the same time if you're willing to split the pay.  

I will also be there every day to welcome the kids, get them checked in, do introductions, etc. and assist throughout the day as needed. 

ASSETS:

  • WE HAVE A PRINTING PRESS!!!!  This one, in fact.  It's a very nice piece of equipment, I'd ask that kids never use it unsupervised. You'll probably want to be the one setting it up and maybe just let them turn the wheel. 
  • We can have a screen printing frames March; we'll need them anyway for the adult course in screen printing we're starting in April.
  • 6 digital cameras with tripods.  These are simple point-and-shoot and suitable for kids to use.  We can get parents to sign waivers if you want to do a photography walk-about in
    the downtown/strand neighborhood. 
  • 10+ bags of raw wool and silk for felting projects (dyed various beautiful colors)
  • We have access to several kilns with nearby businesses/organizations that can do both bisque and glaze firings.  There is staff on-site to help with them, too.
  • Digital projector and projection screen
  • Drying racks, 8 easels, and 16 adjustable-angle drafting table tops
  • All the basic supplies for painting, drawing and sculpting

I hope that gives you some ideas!  If you have an idea that requires specific materials, let me know and I'll see if I can make it happen.

Please Include:
  1. Dates and times you want to teach
  2. Topic you want to teach 
  3. What, specifically, will students make?  How many can they expect to make?
  4. What's different about this camp that they wouldn't learn somewhere else in Galveston?
  5. Supplies, equipment needs
  6. Phone number where I can reach you
I will reply within two days and we can discuss teaching rates, materials to prepare, resources, brainstorm about details, etc.


Reply by JANUARY 15th to be considered!!!

The Byrdcliffe Art Colony has received a generous grant from the Pollock-Krasner Foundation for visual artists living/working in North America who have been displaced or otherwise affected by a natural disaster and are seeking a residency for the 2018 season. This grant includes significant funding for artists affected by the recent earthquakes in Mexico, wildfires in California, hurricanes in Texas, Puerto Rico, and Florida, and other natural disasters. Please note that destruction of a home or studio by extremes of weather (e.g. pipes bursting due to freezing) is not covered by this grant.



The Pollock-Krasner grant will offer up to 20 selected visual artists in all media a full fellowship to attend the four-week residency. The grant will also provide a stipend to assist with the cost of travel to and from the residency, and supplies to help compensate for lost and damaged materials.



In addition to the supplemental materials required to complete the residency application, artists seeking funding through the Pollock-Krasner grant are asked to submit a statement of need (300-500 words), which should describe the importance of the grant to your current situation as an artist affected by natural disaster. Please also include a brief description of the event itself and any damage, if applicable, to personal property including your artwork.

Byrdcliffe offers financial aid to participants based on a combination of need and merit. In 2016, this support was made possible through the generosity of the Pollock-Krasner Foundation and Byrdcliffe restricted funds, including the Milton and Sally Avery Fund for Visual Art. To be considered for a fellowship, artists must submit the required financial information as listed in the application under question #8. You will also need to attach a PDF of your most recent tax return to the File Upload section.



Beyond the general need and merit based aid available through the fellowship application, Byrdcliffe is offering the following fellowships with the support of our granting partners for the 2018 AiR season:



  • The annual Mantooth/Morabito Fellowship for an artist of color.

  • The annual Monica Coleman/Kate Pierson Fellowship for a self-identified woman artist.
