Various locations near downtown Columbus
DescriptionIt is very possible that this internship is the most exciting, fun, and engaging opportunity out there...not to mention that you will be gaining invaluable experience in the fields of art, education, business, and what I consider the most important role of all: HOW TO BE YOUR OWN BOSS AND MAKE YOUR OWN DECISIONS! I am the co-founder of this company InterART and our business model thus far is to hold diverse art classes for ANYONE to enjoy, regardless of having any prior art experience. Most of our classes allow our students/clients to BYOB, which fuels the creativity even further! We have had thousands of satisfied clients, some whom arrive a bit on the nervous or apprehensive side, as they are 'stepping outside of their box', but all of whom leave feeling like they have at the very least experienced a new exploration of self.
I have been the primary instructor for each and every InterART class thus far, and we are ready to expand into new markets. Candidates who are applying for this position should have a high degree of confidence, patience, belief, and strong social skills, as this position will most certainly reinforce every one of those and more. You will be assisting in the instruction during a brief training period, and then ultimately leading these once-a-week classes with at least one other (could be a friend (or more) if you choose!)
The goals of our classes are to help people explore what it is like to be an artist, think like an artist, and feel like an artist, and of course...just have fun. This is achieved by allowing our students to make their own decisions as to what they will be creating. I always say 'I have never told anyone WHAT to create...I only help them understand HOW to do it, and to feel the freedom to do so."
The position does not require any prior experience in teaching, and only very basic familiarity with art in general. I have created a step by step general class outline which will act as a very useful tool.
Some of the fringe benefits to this position include:
-Bring up to four friends at NO COST to experience the class and/or assist you in any way.
-Receive credit for classes
-Meet new people
-Be in a respected position as a role of an instructor
-Short hours (we do our classes Fri. or Sat night (alternates weekly) from 7:30-9:30...plus appx. hour set up and break down)...only 4 hours per week!!!
-Make this position into whatever you want it to be = Flexibility to evolve and grow
-No one telling you what to do, just suggesting how.
-Have your own voice be heard
-Potential for a full-time, paid position.
-Understanding a business from the ground up
-Time to create your own art during the class with free supplies
