We are currently looking for writing/literary arts teachers for our literary programs.

Words vs. Pictures: This is our visual and literary arts program and you may spend some time throughout the year working with an artist/teaching artist. You will have the opportunity to create your curriculum to teach our students different writing disciplines and engage them in projects related to self-expression/exploration, current events, and other subjects of interest. You will work with the students to create works suitable for a show/exhibit at the end of the year.

Bookworms: This is our book club for young readers. The club meets once per month during the school year.Read thrilling books and do fun activities with elementary school aged children to build their love of reading.

Beyond Words: This book club is for teens. The club meets once per month during the school year. Engage middle and high school students in reading books with themes relevant to today's events.

We are looking for writers/teachers that can teach various literary arts disciplines - poetry, short essay, biography, etc. Please contact us whether you are interested in teaching for the whole school year, a semester, or a particular subject/discipline for a limited time. We are open to the right teacher or combination of teachers.

At Artsmith, we are dedicated to providing arts education to young people in the Bronx who have little or no opportunity to experience the arts. We know that the arts provide our students with a great and safe place to learn creativity, experiment and take risks, develop discipline, and build confidence. Arts education should not be a question of access. You must believe in this mission to volunteer with us!

Email resume to tricia.smith@artsmith.org to be considered.
