Art Instructors – MAM’s Yard School of Art


MAM welcomes interested artist/educators to submit proposals for new and/or existing classes or workshops in studio art, ceramics, or digital media. To apply, please provide resume, an illustrated portfolio of your teaching including two sample lesson plans teaching to the target audience you are interested teaching at MAM, three professional references that reflect your teaching practices, and images of your own artwork if a practicing artist. All applications must be submitted electronically to yardschool@montclairartmuseum.org. Proposals will be reviewed by the Education Director upon the following variables: interest and availability of student base, compatibility with curriculum and exhibitions, and the quality and thoroughness of the proposal. MAM is an equal opportunity employer and values diversity among staff and instructors.






MAM members receive discounts on every Yard School of Art offering (average savings: $30!). For easy one-step ordering, visit the Yard School of Art website. You can add a membership to your cart to immediately earn discounts on every class you purchase.





The Montclair Art Museum's Ceramics Studio is the only resource of its kind at a Museum in NJ. For updates about when work is ready for pick up, open studio hours, and special events visit montclairartmuseum.org/ceramics.
