Workshop Teachers

Applications are now being accepted for the teacher position at Summer Arts 2022!

The ideal candidates at Summer Arts are teachers and practicing artists in their fields: typically teaching at a high school, college, art center, or privately, with significant experience teaching or coaching students in the arts, or other professionals who have demonstrated excellence and joy in teaching, coaching, or leading students in one or more of the other disciplines taught at Summer Arts. Workshops at Putney are interactive, hands-on, making and doing-and fun.

Teachers who are invited to return to Summer Arts are typically asked to help acclimate teachers who are new to The Putney School Summer Arts.

What would you teach?

We present some workshops every year – drawing, painting, creative writing, farm, etc. to give students the opportunity for in-depth study and practice in these foundational areas. We are currently looking for teachers to teach the workshops listed and described on the Putney School Summer Arts website.
