Posted:
Aug 13, 2019
There is an opening for a Substitute Art Instructor for the 2019-20 school year. The opening is for 3 morning class sessions referenced on the associated class schedule. Attached is the draft schedule to date. Candidates who wish to apply can do so for all or part of the schedule of classes (Please specify your preferred class sessions).

Each session includes a 30 minute pre-class planning time and a 1 hour staff meeting each week on Mondays from 11:30 – 12:30. Cincinnati Arts and Technology Studios (CATS) classes begin the week of Sept. 9 –May 3, 2019. The pay is $20/hr.

Substitute Art Instructor Description
CATS studio courses are taught in a “guild” model where high school students work side-by-side with practicing artists. The guild model creates bonds and encourages students’ development of skills and discipline needed for success in all walks of life. Students are expected to develop and employ an arts vocabulary, and are encouraged to observe how the development of their art, from concept to completion, parallels other aspects of their lives. Maximum class size is 12 students or less. The Substitute Art Instructor attends every session assigned and familiarizes themselves with the functions of each studio, working alongside the studio’s instructor. This prepares the sub instructor to be able to continue with the work at hand in each studio should the regular art instructor be out absent. Proficiency in each studio media is not required as one can learn alongside the high school students whenever needed.

1st semester: The bulk of the instruction centers on experiments in the various media as in those mentioned above. Upon conclusion of experience with new media (called Skill Building), students decide on their preferred media to execute a final piece of art that connects to a theme presented to them by the Director of Education.

2nd semester: Students continue to hone their skills in the various media again preparing to produce a final artwork within the new semester theme.

Lesson Plan Development and Monitoring Student Progress
All of the Ohio Department of Education regulations for meeting credit granting standards are handled by the CATS Director of Education. All rubrics, thematic units, handouts, and other course materials are created for instructors. The main duty of the substitute instructor is to help students continue to work on their projects in the absence of a studio instructor.
 
Monitoring, tracking and reporting student progress is done by the Director of Education and with the input and support of the substitute instructor.

Other Duties and Expectations
- Arrive ½ hour prior to the beginning of class.
- Complete all paperwork, assignments, and other duties.
- Get familiar with each studio by spending time learning in each whenever not substituting.
- Participate in bi-annual student exhibitions as a staff member.
