Teaching Artist/Museum Educator:
Lehigh University Art Galleries (LUAG) seeks energetic and creative teaching artists and museum educators (who work in a variety of media) to enable us to strengthen and enhance the education programs we offer to adults, children, and community partnerships.
A successful candidate must be personable, supportive of students, knowledgeable of general art history and have the flexibility to provide engaging programs for students with a range of knowledge and skill levels. Experience teaching on a virtual platform is a plus, but not required.
LUAG seeks dynamic individuals to join our team and to assist with the development and delivery of exhibitions, public programs and educational resources. Dates and times of the internship are flexible. Hours will range from 6-10 hours per week. Candidates do not need to possess extensive background or knowledge in art, but a love of art and culture is a plus.
Internships are offered throughout the academic year and over the summer in each department of the Art Galleries— Marketing/Communications, Curatorial, Preparation, Education, and Visitor Services—and occasionally for special projects. Please contact us for availability and more information.
Possible positions include:
Curatorial: Exhibition Prep and art historical research
Education and Interpretation: Community outreach, public programming, art historical research/interpretation, and art education
Collection Management: Preservation, art handling, and collections management
Development: Fundraising, grant writing, membership management, and visitor services
Marketing: Communication strategy and implementation, public relations, and social media
