Every year Chestnut Ridge Academy does a Fine Arts Series during the spring semester. It is a series of events and workshops that focus on one artist. Through the series, students learn about the artist and try to create art in that artist's style. In the past, we have studied Vincent VanGogh, Jan Vermeer, and Wayne Thiebaud. This year our focus will be on Henri Matisse. We hope to kick off this series in early February.
We try to keep it geared for all ages. In the past, we have split into groups of K-8th grade and High school with one group meeting in the morning and the other in the afternoon.
We are looking for help with teaching the workshops.
Here are the details:
Workshop Teacher - Plan and teach a hands-on workshop (class) focused on Henri Matisse. We have two workshop dates planned. Each date will have two sessions. K-8th grade will be from 10am to 11:30. High School (8th -12th grade) will be from 1 to 2:30. Teacher will be provided or reimbursed for materials. The teacher should provide CRA with a brief description of the workshop they are teaching.
Masters & Me Tea Assistant - Assist the host of this event by helping to set up, serve students and clean up at the end.
Silent Auction Coordinator - Student art will be on auction at this event. Plan, organize and host our culminating event that will be a fundraiser for CRA's building fund.
Compensation: Will be based on the number of students signed up. A minimum of $20 per workshop. The teacher's child(ren) may attend the workshop/event their parent is teaching/organizing for free.
