Instructors for Creative Classes

The Denver Art Museum seeks creative educators to develop and instruct Creative Classes for adult audiences, beginning in January 2022.

About the Opportunity

We're seeking creative educators to develop and instruct Creative Classes for adult audiences, beginning in January 2022. Both experimental and traditional approaches that speak to the breadth of creative practice may be explored—to widen and ignite the creative perspective of DAM visitors and develop connections with exhibitions and collections.

These classes could include such content as weaving with organic materials, DIY LED light boxes, wheat pasting collage, drawing bodies in motion, or any other creative pursuit. Creative Classes will be held in the new Learning and Engagement Center workshop spaces in the renovated Martin Building, opening fall 2021.

Learn more about this opportunity by viewing the online application form or by downloading the request for proposal.

How to Apply

Qualifications we're looking for include:

  • Currently active creative/artistic practice
  • Wants to share their creative expertise with others
  • Experience teaching a wide age range of adults
  • Minimum of a Bachelor’s degree in a related field or equivalent experience

Communities of color and other marginalized communities have been underrepresented in art museums over decades, both internally and externally. We believe that these communities must be centered in the work we do. Hence, we strongly encourage proposals from people with these identities.

Update: Applications are now closed.
