Job Opening: Contract Artist-Educators

Progressive Arts Alliance (PAA) is seeking local visual artists for contract art instruction positions. Contractors are needed for in-school residencies as well as after school settings, primarily in Cleveland. Residencies focus on arts integration by linking art with existing curriculum to deepen student understanding of academic topics while providing rich, hands-on artmaking experiences. Residencies are designed in partnership with classroom teachers and occur during the school day. PAA’s after school programs focus on providing students with high-quality opportunities in the arts and are not tied to specific academic instruction. Artists will receive paid training in PAA’s processes, and these contract positions are part-time and flexible.
