Drawing teacher for Foundation / First-Year students

The role of drawing in the Foundation curriculum is fundamental. We are dedicated to teaching all first-year students basic skills, techniques and approaches to drawing from both a traditional and contemporary perspective. The first semester is rigorous in terms of covering basic knowledge: perspective, figure-drawing, still-life, composition, and manipulation of different drawing tools and materials. We believe that drawing continues to be an essential discipline for artists and designers- more often than not, still the first expression of a creative thought. Drawing is challenging; requiring patience, daring, dedication, hard-work and a certain willing to ‘let go’, managing students through the course requires a teacher skilled in many ways. We are looking for an experienced educator – with a passion for drawing – who has a strong understanding of how to work with students at the beginning of their Art and Design studies.

REQUIRED:

  • Fluency in English
  • Teaching experience, ideally in the field of Drawing
  • Educated to Masters Level
  • Examples of successful workshops / courses / classes
  • Professional experience in the field of Art and Design

HIGHLY DESIRABLE

  • A knowledge of the American system of Art and Design Education
  • An personal practice in drawing
  • A teaching qualification

HOURS: One class / 5 hours per week / 15 weeks per Semester

Please send a CV and statement about your approach to teaching drawing to Chloe Briggs, Chair of Foundation (chloe.briggs@paris.edu) by Monday 30th April.
