Arts and Environment Educator (Part-time, Seasonal)

Musketquid Arts & Environment, a program of the Emerson Umbrella Center for the Arts, is a Concord-based nonprofit organization that provides opportunities to create and discover the arts while learning about and exploring the environment. We hope inspire a discovery of the arts and environmental advocacy and responsibility. In our 23rd year, Musketaquid is best known for its Earth Day Celebration, including a River Ceremony, Parade and Festival.

Musketaquid seeks part time seasonal teachers to help develop a new program of arts and environment education to children and adults. Our goal is to have every class teach an artistic skill and provide knowledge about some aspect of the environment. A slate of classes for a semester might include classes for children, classes for adults, some classes that have an outdoor element, and at least one class that provides some skill development and some connection to the history of the land and its people. Sample classes might include: If You Give A Kid A Camera, Literature and Art, Outdoor Painting, Survival Skills, Nature Detectives, Orienteering, Tracking, Outdoor Explorations and Art Sampler: canoeing, biking, hiking, swimming, yoga, photography, drawing, painting, journaling, singing, and dancing. Teachers co-develop curriculum with Musketaquid staff, and are encouraged to bring their skills and talents to the table.

Requirements:
1-2 years experience teaching youth,
1-2 years experience in outdoor education and/or art education.
Passion for connecting people to the earth and environment
Interest in curriculum development
Ability to take initiative and think creatively
Interest in developing artistic skills
