Community Teaching Assistant Positions

The Corcoran’s community ArtReach program is seeking teaching assistants for their afterschool classes. The ArtReach program is a semester-based museum outreach program designed to empower DC youth to explore creativity within the context of art appreciation and art making. Using the Gallery’s exhibitions as a primary resource, ArtReach fosters visual literacy, critical thinking skills, and creative expression among its participants while encouraging them to develop meaningful connections between art and their lives.


ArtReach Partner Locations:

THEARC (Town Hall Education Arts Recreation Campus) - Congress Heights - 1901 Mississippi Ave SE DC 20020

The Sitar Arts Center - Adams Morgan - 1700 Kalorama Rd NW DC 20009



Student Teaching Assistants will work alongside ArtReach instructors to help with art-making projects, a fieldtrip to the Corcoran, gallery activities, documenting student progress on the ArtReach blog, archiving student work and assisting with the final exhibition. ArtReach classes meet during the day for 90 minutes with 30 minutes of preparation and clean up. Student Teaching Assistants are expected to commit to assisting the ArtReach instructor consistently once or twice a week for a semester.
