Employment Opportunities


Updated January 15, 2021


Young at Art is currently a fully mobile art program. We bring our program to private homes, schools, preschools, rec centers, and other organizations. Our classes are designed primarily for children aged 2 to 10. We are looking for several experienced teachers and assistants who are willing to teach in-person classes at students’ homes, schools, or centers.

Each class is 1-hour. Classes range in size from 5-14 children. Assistant teachers are provided for large classes (6+ for children aged 3-6; 8+ for children aged 7-10).

Classes take place at the following times:

  • 3:00-6:00, Mon-Fri - all age groups

  • 9:30-11:30, Mon-Fri - parent-child classes for ages 2-5

Teachers work on a part-time contract basis. You tell us what days you can work and how many classes you want to teach per week. You must commit to teaching each class for the full semester. Semesters vary based on the school or center where they are taught. They are typically 6-weeks long. You are paid by-the-class on a biweekly pay schedule. We offer competitive pay for experienced teachers. No benefits. Individuals looking for teaching experience can work as assistants.
