Our teachers are all working artists and artisans – cabinetmakers, seamstresses, designers, painters and craftspeople of all kinds. They choose to teach at the Eliot School because they like the informal, welcoming atmosphere of our arts center and its dual focus on craftsmanship and community.
Our faculty teach in two settings:
- at our schoolhouse in Jamaica Plain, and
- through our School Partnership Program, which sends teachers out to schools throughout the city.
Prospective teachers at our schoolhouse should send a course proposal, recognizing that each semester’s catalog goes into production many months before its courses are actually offered.
If you would like to teach art or woodworking in our School Partnership Program, please send a resume, a cover note and some images of your work.
We also host a pool of classroom aides who volunteer to help out our School Partnership teachers. These may be students, people making a transition from school to career or between careers, or others who have flexibility in their daytime schedules and the desire to give that time generously to help bring arts and fine crafts to schoolchildren.
If you would like to volunteer as a classroom aide, please send a resume and a cover note telling us something about your skills and your reasons for being interested in the position.
