    Kennedy Heights Arts Center is looking to expand and diversify our teaching roster and is seeking fun proposals from professional artists and arts educators for 2022 Summer Art Camps

    Summer Camp Instructors are responsible for planning projects and activities for campers, organizing student art exhibitions that end each week of camp, and providing direction to high-school volunteers who provide in-class support with camp activities.

    Each camp should be planned around a distinct theme suitable for students of varying ages and skill levels, and should include projects that can be completed over the course of one week.

    Instructors are invited to propose up to 5 unique camp offerings. Please submit an application form for EACH camp you are proposing.
