Youth Education and Outreach Teaching Artists
Accepting applications on a rolling basis
From hosting student workshops in our community studios, to bringing the hands-on experience directly into classrooms and community events, Pyramid prides itself on providing quality arts education opportunities for students of all ages and all backgrounds. With our partnerships growing to include more schools and organizations in the community over the last year, Pyramid is looking to grow its network of teaching artists.
Like working with kids? Have a background in papermaking, printmaking, or book arts? Do you have weekday availability? If so, we'd love to chat with you!
This is a PAID opportunity!
Opportunities will be assigned based on availability and discipline (printmaking, book arts, papermaking).
Teaching artists will work with Pyramid staff to develop programming activities appropriate for the age group and scheduled workshop time.
Teaching artists will be provided with agreed upon materials and additional support needed each session
Teaching artists will work with Pyramid staff and the contact at the school/organization to finalize planning and "day of" logistics.
- Opportunities most often occur during weekdays (when school is in session), but larger community events can occur on weekends.
- Opportunities are more sporadic in nature (not regularly occurring from week to week). In a given week, you might have one 2–3 hour session, while the next week may not have anything scheduled.

Students from the Hyattsville Teen Center learn how to print their own designs in our Screenprinting Studio.
Teaching artists and volunteers led a hands-on printmaking activity as part of the Hyattsville Library's "Blast-Off to Summer Reading" block party this past June.
