Art Teachers

Deadline May 31, 2023

EngAGE Northwest is seeking a contract art instructors/teaching artists.
EngAGE Northwest creates community and changes lives by transforming affordable older adult and multigenerational housing communities into vibrant centers of learning, wellness, and creativity.

By delivering life-enhancing, tailored programming in well-being, the arts, lifelong learning, and intergenerational opportunities, older adults and other residents are enabled to use their acquired skills in real-world ways to gain enrichment and mastery. Through our programs, participants experience the empowerment of intellectual and creative engagement, and improve their health at the same time. We have chosen housing as our platform to deliver programs that fully engage residents and provide them with dynamic intellectual and creative challenges as well as a healthy sense of self-fulfillment, value, and community.
The EngAGE Northwest mission is to empower people – intellectually, creatively, and emotionally – to do what they do best for the rest of their lives. Where others see a problem, we see potential. Where loss, decline, or deficit are perceived, we see opportunity and capacity.
We are seeking an independent contract art instructor/teaching artist to work with residents at housing/apartment communities in Portland, Tigard and St. Helens. Areas of interest include painting, drawing, ceramics, and jewelry making.
The instructor would create the curriculum that develops the resident’s artistic skills, provides a positive creative outlet, and produces a body of work to display at a community showcase.
Classes are taught once a week for an 8-10 week semester.
The final class ends with a culminating event featuring the work created by the class participants.
If you are a skilled artist and instructor with an interest in building positive community, contact lauraspidell.engaage@gmail.com or call 971-990-3072.
