BOOK ARTS JOB OPENING – PART-TIME PROGRAMS ASSISTANT

APPLY BY SATURDAY, JULY 31, 2021

The Western New York Book Arts Center (Book Arts) seeks a part-time Programs Assistant for our signature educational outreach program, Printing Partners.

For over 6 years, Printing Partners has worked with underserved communities throughout the Buffalo area to offer high-quality hands-on creative arts classes in bookmaking and printmaking for a range of skill levels and age groups.

The Programs Assistant will work part-time under the guidance of the Book Arts Education Director and assist in art class duties including but not limited to: program administration and class planning in-person and via email/virtual meetings, promotion and communications, material preparation, hands-on in-person instructional assistance at each class (one-on-one and in a group setting alongside a Book Arts Lead Teaching Artist), and virtual instruction assistance via Zoom.

Art classes may take place in-person at various community sites around the Buffalo, NY area, and/or virtually via Zoom, typically during “after-school” hours. It’s strongly suggested candidates have their own means of transportation to and from class sites, as well as a means of attending and participating in Zoom virtual workshops. If either of these present a barrier, please let us know in your application process, as we’re willing to accommodate to find the ideal candidate.

Ideal candidate:

  • Comfortable working with children ages 5+, teens & families 
  • Interested in education and/or arts, but more importantly a person who is interested in learning and helping others learn in a creative environment. 
  • Arts and/or teaching experience preferred, but not necessary. 
  • Comfortable working in a small team and in community classroom environments
  • Excellent time management
  • Clear communication and writing skills (email & correspondence with community sites)

Position Information:

  • $15 per hour
  • 10–15 hours/week
  • Tentative start date early 09/2021

WNY Book Arts Center is an equal opportunity employer. Ideal candidates would be representative of the students participating in the program, including but not limited to those from underrepresented communities. Must be 18 years of age to apply. Upon applying, please learn more about Printing Partners.

Applications accepted until Saturday, July 31, 2021. No phone calls, please. Questions regarding the position can be sent to [email protected]
