Visual Art Instructor, Governor’s School West @ Salem College

Governor’s School West is hiring a lead instructor in the area of Visual Art. The Visual Art instructor will work with a diverse class of 16-18 students from across the state who have undergone a rigorous application process to attend the Governor’s School. Area I classes are held twice a day, Monday through Friday, and Saturday mornings. The lead Visual Art instructor is responsible for curriculum development, purchasing supplies, organizing studio space, and mounting student exhibitions in the Elberson Fine Arts Center at Salem College. In the past, the art curriculum at Governor’s School West has focused on experimentation, material exploration, conceptual thinking, collaboration, and developing community in the studio. This is a unique chance for students to be exposed to the world of contemporary art in a classroom setting outside of their typical high school environments. Governor’s School is a residential program, so instructors are asked to be active participants in our community throughout the summer, including attending campus-wide speakers or presenting optional seminars on a wide range of topics based on their interests and specialties. There are many opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration among both faculty and students in this unique teaching and learning environment. Art educators with an active studio practice and passion for innovative art education are encouraged to apply.
