Employment Opportunities at KAC

Teaching Opportunities

Consider teaching in the supportive environment of the Kirkland Arts Center!

Apply to be an instructor at KAC!

Kirkland Arts Center is seeking strong candidates for upcoming quarters. We look for experienced art teachers with an enthusiasm for teaching and mentoring students at a range of skill levels and backgrounds. Our ideal candidates are eager to support our efforts to reach new students using their own contacts and augmenting our outreach efforts.

The minimum requirements are a BFA and 2 or more years teaching art. We are always accepting proposals for new classes and workshops for students of all ages and skill levels. KAC currently offers classes and workshops in ceramics, painting, printmaking, drawing, digital art and photography, writing, collage, jewelry, and fiber art but applicants are also welcome to propose courses outside of our current media offerings. Courses are scheduled on a quarterly basis.

All positions are on contract. Instructors are paid on a stepped schedule that adjusts with student enrollment levels.

To apply, please send a resume and two to three images of your work or a link to an online portfolio to our Education Director at education@kirklandartscenter.org.

If you are proposing a new class or workshop, please also provide a general class description, ideal class or workshop length (6 week class, 10 week class, 1 day workshop, 3 day workshop, etc.), and which days and times you have open for classes. For new courses, we have to find room in the ongoing schedule so flexibility is appreciated. Images of the sort of work students would create in class are also helpful.
