The Hun School of Princeton seeks a dynamic and creative Part-Time Upper School Visual Arts (Drawing) Teacher for an immediate opening.
The Visual Art classes at The Hun School teach students to think like artists: how to explore the world with curiosity, adapt solutions to fit a variety of problems, and foster the passion to express themselves visually. Lessons offer technical skill building as well as knowledge of artists throughout history and cultures that relate to the specific coursework. Visual Art teachers work to present multiple strategies for encouraging creative expression from students.
