The Ohio Alliance for Arts Education’s Art in the House program sends teams of two artists – a lead teaching artist and a younger apprentice artist – to provide arts programming for the K-5 afterschool & summer youth programs of various community service agencies around Columbus.
We are currently looking for apprentice artists for two locations: St. Stephen’s Community House in Linden, and Lincoln Park Elementary on the Southside (program managed by Community Development For All People).
The apprentice artist position is an opportunity for a young adult (approx. 16-21yo) to explore possible careers in the arts and education. The apprentice artist will assist the lead artist with planning and implementing arts programming, and is responsible for completing administrative paperwork (taking attendance, etc.). The apprentice will also be expected to occasionally take the lead in designing programming, under the mentorship of the lead artist.
Artists with backgrounds in all artistic disciplines are encouraged to apply for the apprentice position.
Spring semester will run approximately from mid-January to the end of May. Artists are paid for 10 hours a week: nine hours for on-site programming, and an extra hour to cover the occasional meetings and events that artists may be asked to participate in outside of their regular schedule. The apprentice pay is $12/hr; the schedule at both St. Stephen’s and Lincoln Park ES is MTW 3-6pm.
To apply, email a letter of interest (including experience with the arts and reason for interest in the position) or resume to Oulanje Regan, Program Manager: Community Arts Education, email@example.com.
