Thank you for your interest in the Museum's Teaching Assistant program!
Teaching Assistant (TA) positions are for 15 – 18-year-olds interested in art and/or working with children. The positions are on a volunteer basis and count toward required community service hours.
The TAs are responsible for assisting the Teaching Artist in the classroom, preparing materials, and helping children with hands-on art making. They provide a vital element of SBMA programming, including being role models for students and campers, as well as an added source of fun and enthusiasm. Teaching Artists rely heavily on the TAs to ensure that their classrooms run smoothly.
Becoming a TA provides young artists with professional skills in art making and art education. This competitive program includes an orientation and mentoring by a Teaching Artist. Teaching Assistants walk away with a solid relationship with the Museum, teaching skills, new art techniques, and more.
