AS THE CLEVELAND PRINT ROOM EXPANDS OUR EDUCATION OFFERINGS WE ARE SEEKING LEAD TEACHING ARTISTS & TEACHING ARTISTS
THE CLEVELAND PRINT ROOM STORY
Founded in 2013, Cleveland Print Room (CPR) is a non-profit community darkroom, gallery, and recognized education center located in Cleveland. We believe that young people have important stories to be told that deserve to be heard and that through the medium of photography they can find their voice. Our programs engage young people in creative self-expression, fostering interaction with their environment and community, learning what it means to be an artist. We reach youth in grades 6 – 12 and meet them where they are – in schools, after school programs, summer programs, churches, and community centers. Our programs focus on serving marginalized communities, where the majority of the students are youth of color, with some students English language learners.
Cleveland Print Room invites you to join our Teen Institute creative workforce as a Teaching Art and/or Lead Teaching Artist. Teen Institute offers a wide range of opportunities for students to develop their knowledge of photography, critical thinking, writing, and public speaking. CPR Teaching Artists are hourly, non-exempt employees that teach one to four classes per week. CPR’s programs are held after-school and on Saturdays, in school, community centers and churches in Cleveland. To be considered for this position, candidates must have after school availability between the hours of 3pm – 7pm, and access to reliable transportation. We teach on Saturdays so availability on that day is a plus, but not required.
Starting wage is $25 per hour, with opportunity for an increase after an interim review of three months of employment. Compensation is based on experience and wages for lead teachers start at a higher level. Estimated hours per week for this position are 5 to 15 hours depending on availability of teaching artist and class schedule.
