The Brookline Arts Center (BAC) is seeking several Summer Teaching Assistants to work with children ages 5-11 during our Summer ArtVentures program.
The BAC’s popular ArtVentures program for children blends fun with learning through a balance of structured projects, creative expression and play. We promote artistic exploration while developing technique and critical-thinking skills. Each week’s theme is explored through a variety of mediums and imaginative projects. Students have three breaks during the day to explore our beautiful park, play on the connecting playground or participate in a game with their peers. Our weekly programs culminate in a mini art show designed to showcase and celebrate each child’s artistic accomplishments.
Classes meet from 9:00am-4:00pm with a one hour lunch break for children and two snack breaks. Early drop-off is available at 8:00am and late pick-up is available until 5:30pm. Current Assistant Teacher shifts are 7:45am-3:45pm and 9:30am-5:30pm. These hours may vary slightly. Teaching assistants with 8-hour shifts will have a 30-minute lunch break.
Teaching Assistants will be responsible for:
- Supporting the lead teacher in the classroom.
- Greeting children and families.
- Interacting with and engaging children in activities.
- Understanding the class plan and itinerary
- Adopting Lead Teacher role in case of Lead Teacher absence
