    Summary:
    Episcopal School of Acadiana is seeking a dynamic and engaging visual arts and performing arts teacher to teach sixth and seventh-grade art classes as well as middle and upper school music classes.  The ideal candidate will engage students in a variety of ways to engender enthusiasm for the lessons, he/she will embrace the idea of experiential learning, and be able to develop and execute curriculum in both music and visual arts under the direction of the respective department chairs.

    Program:
    Our visual arts program provides a learning environment that stimulates and maximizes the creative and artistic potential of each student.  The learning experience emphasizes creative problem solving and critical thinking. We passionately believe that the experiences of creating and contemplating art are essential for each student’s development into a full person. The arts foster creativity, self-expression, and awareness of the world around us, and are an important part of fulfilling ESA’s mission to challenge students to develop intellectually, spiritually, and physically. Through art classes, students actively engage in the process of creating art and develop habits, skills, and ways of seeing that enhance their lives on many levels. Students are challenged to use creative problem-solving strategies and to experience firsthand the failures, successes, and frustrations of producing art. Emphasis is on the quality of experience and creative process, rather than product, for student evaluation.

    The Performing Arts Department’s goal is to help students develop their theatrical talents and musical creativity.  Students may perform both at school and in the surrounding communities.  Each music ensemble and drama class will expose the students to a wide variety of artistic genres, ultimately creating a life-long enjoyment of the performing arts. The expectation is to create a stimulating and inspiring performing arts learning environment in collaboration with the whole team. Beyond the classroom, execution and setup for performance activities including assemblies, shows, and special occasions are expected along with organizing the equipment and performing arts performance opportunities, such as running sound or helping with technical aspects. The pursuit of developing, promoting and supporting parallel activities such as sound recording and composition are desires we hope to offer as we look to the immediate future of the program.

    Knowledge and Qualifications:
    A Bachelor’s degree is required.  Candidates with a Master’s degree or higher with 3 or more years teaching experience is preferred.
