Putney School Summer Woodworking Instructor Wanted

May 11, 2022 8:38 AM | Lars Hasselblad Torres (Administrator)

The Putney School has an opening for the Summer Programs Woodworking Workshop teacher to teach 9-noon, M-F for the month of July. Students ages 14-17 who have a love of the arts and for learning, choose to apply and attend this enrichment arts program. Students and teachers thrive in this environment in which teacher/artists have the freedom to develop curriculum with projects that they believe will promote essential skill development, hands-on learning, and creative expression.

Teachers living locally are asked to join all teachers for the June 29-July 2 orientation. This entails studio/workshop set-up time, orientation to the goals and expectations for students and of the program, and involves getting to know teachers across the disciplines. We offer 23 month-long workshops during July  - from Animation to Creative Writing and class size is small. The Woodworking Workshop is capped at 6 students.

Teacher/artist participation outside of workshop time in select community events over the course of the month is expected as a way of supporting our 110 students living on campus. Simple private room accommodations are available June 28 - July 30. Compensation is $2,750, plus single room and board for teachers choosing to live for the month on this gorgeous hilltop farm campus.
