Art Educator for Looking to Learn at Massachusetts College of Art and Design

Massachusetts College of Art and Design (MassArt) is home to the largest free contemporary art space in New England. The Bakalar / Paine Galleries are a public cultural and educational resource at MassArt. They showcase dynamic and thought-provoking contemporary art exhibitions by emerging to established artists, and designers in all media.

Now in its 22nd year, Looking to Learn in the Bakalar / Paine Galleries is a visual learning program for Metro Boston Area public and private school students enrolled in 4th through 12th grades. This program uses contemporary art as a gateway to imagination, creative skill-building, and personal understanding in a two-visit learning format:
1) The first visit is a school classroom orientation;
2) The second is a visit to MassArt focused on close looking, learning, and art making.

The Looking to Learn educator works as a member of the Gallery Education team. This is a part time, paid position, 20 hours/week, September 2018 /quot;March 2019. Planning sessions begin in August 2018.

Between summer 2018 and fall 2019 the Galleries will undergo a major renovation and a transformative revitalization. While there will be no formal exhibitions on view during this period, Looking to Learn will explore studio art practices at MassArt for the Metro Boston Area public and private school students through the two-visit model.
