We are seeking dynamic instructors in ceramics, dance, drama, literary arts, music and visual arts to teach in the Arts Education Program at the Grand. If you are an artist, arts educator, administrator, or organizational leader interested in teaching or offering educational programs, we encourage you to submit a proposal to teach a class, private lessons, workshop, seminar or camp.
We collaborate with contract Instructors of all kinds, from individual artists and arts organizations, to non-profits and commercial businesses. Instructors are free to design their own curriculum and set their own teaching schedules.
While there are no requirements to hold teaching credentials, we do ask that Instructors teaching classes for youth emulate the State of California’s Visual and Performing Arts Standards. You will find the VAPA Standards addressed in our proposal forms.
The Contract Instructor Handbook contains useful information outlining the process to teach at the Grand. For more information, please contact the Arts Education Coordinator, Valerie Pavlakis at 209.831.6279 or firstname.lastname@example.org and/or download the documents on this page for more information.
