Volunteer Artist Mentor
Venice Arts is always interested in finding qualified volunteers who can assist with our youth programs. Professionals and college students with background qualifications in the following may apply: photography, film/video, animation, multimedia and/or visual arts. Many of our mentors use volunteering as a way to gain teaching experience in their field. Others simply want to inspire young people to hone their craft. Volunteers will be trained by Venice Arts staff and given artist mentor assignments, in our Venice programs, and/or at offsite partner locations.
Must be a photographer, filmmaker, animator, multimedia or visual artist working with media. Experience teaching or working with youth is preferred, but not necessary.
We are currently looking for Volunteer Artist Mentors for our 12-week Fall session, September 9th through December 10th, 2016.
You will be part of a team comprised of a Lead Artist, with background and experience in education, who works cooperatively with volunteer artist mentors to teach the workshops.
Volunteer artist mentors are asked to arrive to their assigned workshop at least 30 minutes early and stay after class for 15-30 minutes to work with the Lead Artist, review the lesson plan, and prepare for that day’s class. Volunteers are welcomed, and encouraged, to prepare and lead lessons, and present their own work, when appropriate.
