Sayre Upper School 3D Art Teacher Job Description

Sayre School, an independent, co-educational PreK-12 school in Lexington, KY, is seeking a full-time 3D Art teacher for its Upper School program. Our Upper School Fine Arts department is a four-member, collegial group of dedicated teachers who love the arts, promote their discipline with students, and are practicing artists themselves. Their collective mission is to inspire students to explore and learn new techniques and skills, and develop within their students the confidence to express their own ideas within their chosen medium.

The current 3D Art teacher teaches the introductory courses in 3D Art, and advanced classes including Ceramics and Metals. Familiarity with InDesign or similar software is important because this position includes teaching a class that publishes the school yearbook. As a school we encourage innovative teaching and collaboration, so candidates for this position may want to consider how to incorporate technology into the 3D Art classroom.

Fine Arts teachers typically teach five classes per day and must be willing to contribute meaningfully to the development of overall department goals as well as work independently. Most importantly, teachers must love working with teenagers as much as they love their subject.

Candidates should have a Masters in Art, and several years of teaching experience are preferable. Please email a resume, statement of teaching philosophy and references to Tim O’Rourke, Head of Upper School at torourke@sayreschool.org.
