TEACHING ARTIST (multiple positions)

Studio in a School (STUDIO) seeks professional visual artists, ideally living in the outer boroughs, for teaching positions in public schools, daycare and community centers throughout New York City.

STUDIO OVERVIEW For 35 years, STUDIO has successfully collaborated with the New York City Department of Education to bring high quality, imaginative visual arts experiences to students and teachers. We are a not-for-profit arts organization that places professional visual artists in New York City's public schools, childcare centers, and community centers to introduce collage, painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture and 2-D applied design and media technology to children and teenagers. Our purpose is to make art a vital part of students' daily educational experiences. The STUDIO artist/instructor develops lesson plans, works in tandem with classroom/art teachers, and presents a variety of art skills in the classroom.


Long Term Program

Long Term Program sites are located in New York City's public elementary schools. Artists teach four full days a week during the school year, over a two-year period of time. In the third year, the program switches to part-time for an additional three years. The STUDIO artist will remain at a site through the transition from full-time to part-time. Approximately 85% of your time will be spent in the school where you will be responsible for classroom instruction, lesson planning and orientation meetings, teacher-training workshops, and special assignments. Approximately 15% of your time will be used for administrative duties, record keeping, tracking student results and purchasing of supplies.

Early Childhood Program

The Early Childhood Program takes place in Pre-K, Kindergarten, and first grade classes in New York City's public elementary schools and day care centers. Artists teach four different classes one day per week for a period of twenty-six weeks. In addition, you will be actively involved in providing staff development for early childhood staff in the schools. Approximately 85% of your time will be spent in school providing classroom instruction; staff development; teacher-training workshops; orientation/planning; and preparation and display of artwork. The remaining 15% of your time will be used for administrative duties, training, record keeping, tracking student results and meetings with STUDIO Directors.

Residency Programs
Sites are located in New York City's public elementary, middle and high schools. The programs run for a period of six to fourteen weeks. In this program artists work with four different classes a day, one day a week per school. Approximately 85% of your time will be spent in school providing orientation/planning, classroom art instruction, teacher training, and display of artwork. Approximately 15% of your time will be used for administrative duties, record keeping, tracking student results, and meetings with STUDIO Directors and training. After School Program The After School Program takes place in New York City public school buildings, community centers, or temporary housing sites after school, from approximately 3:15 - 5:15 p.m. These programs run one afternoon a week, for a minimum of eight weeks. Artists give instruction in collage, drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpture, and/or bookmaking, culminating in a display of children's artwork at the end of the program.

• College degree, B.A./B.F.A, (M.A./M.F.A. preferred). • Actively practicing professional artist. • Exhibition history. • Experience teaching children and/or teenagers in a school or community setting. (Preference is always given to those with teaching experience.)

For Early Childhood positions:

For Long Term and Residency Program positions:

Please send a resume indicating your education, teaching experience, and your exhibition history. Include a brief statement telling us why you want to teach in the New York City public schools, mentioning any special qualities and/or talents you have that would be beneficial to Studio in a School.

Please do not send slides. If you are called for an interview, you will be asked, at that time, to bring images of your work as well as samples of work done by students you have taught.

Because we have a very high volume of inquiries and applications we ask that you do not phone or email us after you have sent in your resume. If your qualifications match our needs and if we have an opening we will call you to come in for an interview. If you are qualified but we have no opening we will keep your resume on file for one year and will notify you if a suitable opening occurs during that time. You may reapply after a year if you have not heard from us. We thank you for your interest in STUDIO, and wish you good luck in your artistic career.


Artist Liaison for Andrea Rosen Gallery’s New Space

Artist Liaison for Andrea Rosen Gallery’s New Space
Andrea Rosen Gallery
- New York, NY

Andrea Rosen Gallery is seeking an individual to join an extremely motivated, hardworking, focused and idealistic team of Artist Liaisons. It is a particularly exciting time of growth and expansion within the gallery. We are deepening our Artist Liaison department as we have recently taken on a number of new artists - Josephine Meckseper, Mika Rottenberg, Ryan Trecartin and the collaborative practice of Lizzie Fitch/Ryan Trecartin - and we are opening a new Gallery 2 space, also located on 24th Street. The new space will both revolve around an exciting project-based program that Gallery 2 has developed a strong reputation for, embracing both historical exhibitions and emerging artists, as well as house our Artist Liaison department.

The Artist Liaison is responsible for deeply supporting our living artists in all aspects, including exhibition planning both inside and outside the gallery, museum relations and production. Each Artist Liaison at the gallery is responsible for developing in depth relationships with a specific set of artists and providing a support structure for their artists. Because of their location within the Gallery 2 space, for a special candidate with particular experience, there is also the possibility for the Artist Liaison to be involved in new as well as existing programming. Experience in historical research would be beneficial. Though the Artist Liaison department will be based in the new space, they will not be isolated from the hub of the main space.

While their dialogue will primarily be with their artists, Artist Liaisons are heavily involved in exhibition planning and organization as well as advocating for institutional exhibition and project-based opportunities for their artists. Therefore, we are seeking a candidate with strong relationships with museums and curators as well as a deep familiarity with international institutions. Because of the Artist Liaison’s invaluable in-depth knowledge of the artists’ work and their practice, they will also work closely with the gallery’s Directors and the sales team in order to facilitate this intertwined relationship. Depending on the candidate and their interests, there is also the potential opportunity for the Artist Liaison to extend their expertise into a dialogue with collectors and the public.

Candidate should be likeable, poised, caring, hardworking, and dedicated. Candidate must have a minimum of three years in a high-level administrative position at a gallery or art institution and ideally should have prior experience as an Artist Liaison. Artist relations should be second nature, as should strong written communication skills. We are seeking someone with experience producing complex projects and exhibitions for artists. A deep knowledge of contemporary art and the workings of a gallery are essential. Candidate should be comfortable with travel, as a primary part of the role of the Artist Liaison is to meet artists in person as well as travel to exhibitions.

Candidate must have a well-developed sense of priority, and an understanding and ability to work within the fast pace of the gallery and with discretion. Attention to detail and the ability to multitask are vital as is the ability to track and follow through with a variety of projects that require immediate attention as well as long term care. Knowledge of other languages and Artbase are preferred but not necessary.

Candidate should be engaged in this position and be able to make a long-term commitment of longevity.
Salary commensurate with experience.
