Hunterdon Art Museum
Part Time
Posted April 03, 2021

Hunterdon Art Museum is seeking a part-time Education Coordinator who will be involved in managing all aspects of our very busy Education Department. The Coordinator will report to and work closely with the Director of Education.

Duties and Responsibilities

Responsibilities will range from registering students, tracking enrollments, sending regular program updates to HAM instructors, staff, and students, and scheduling offerings such as private workshops and birthday parties to maintaining studios, ordering supplies, interacting with program participants, area teachers, and the general public, and assisting with the development of education programs.

The Education Coordinator will also play a lead role on the Museum’s long-running Young Artists Showcase and Summer Camp programs. Young Artists Showcase is a program that involves partnering with approximately 30 local schools each year to exhibit their students’ artwork with goals of celebrating both the art student and teacher. Summer Camp typically runs for nine weeks each summer and includes an active schedule of both half- and full-day programming options for area children. In both cases, the Education Coordinator’s responsibilities are equal parts administrative and hands-on.

Note that HAM’s education offerings are currently taking place virtually. However, we will begin the process of resuming in-person experiences this summer with limited capacity outdoor camp offerings which will take place on the Museum’s terrace.

WORK SCHEDULE:
Part-time. Three days per week from 9am–5pm, with occasional evenings, weekends and holidays.
During Summer Camp, depending on the Education Coordinator’s schedule, hours shift to either 7:30am-5pm or 8am–5pm.
