PART-TIME ART TUTOR
The Learning Connexion is a tertiary level school of art and creativity based in the Hutt Valley, Wellington.
We seek a part-time art tutor to join our blended learning team on the Diploma of Art & Creativity (Advanced) Level 7.
The role involves delivery of four one day workshops on campus (one per term) integrated with online delivery via Zoom and Google Classrooms (the latter presently in development).
The programme is based upon Ako approaches, where a non-hierarchical relationship between tutor and student is established with the aim of drawing creativity out of the student, rather than imposing a set of standards.
Creative context is orientated in the student's work, with professional practice and research based practice wrapped around individual creative practice.
To be successful in this position you will be able to:
- Work with students in ways which are respectful, helpful and supportive
- Deliver to students with a broad range of abilities and creative contexts
- Understand and articulate the creative process and how this connects with students’ work
- Deliver class content through a blend of online and face to face delivery
- Be flexible, patient and able to think on your feet
Applicants would preferably either hold a degree level qualification in visual/fine arts, or have completed The Diploma in Art and Creativity (Advanced) through The Learning Connexion. Prior teaching experience is required. We also expect our tutors to be practising artists with an active personal practise. Training, teaching materials and course outlines will be provided to the successful applicant to work from, which can be amended for future delivery.
The role is part-time (approx. 14 hours per week) and based at our Taita campus in the Hutt Valley.
Please email your application, including a covering letter, current resume, references and/or referees, and a selection of images demonstrating your creative practice to email@example.com
Applications close 5pm Sunday 20 June 2021.
