Vacancy for Oil Painting Tutor


Courtyard Arts Centre is a registered charity founded in 1996 with the mission “to provide a launch pad for all members of the community to achieve their artistic potential”. We are a community arts centre in Hertford housed in a converted stable block, offering cultural and educational activity alongside a contemporary gallery. We have a small gift shop, café and two artists’ studios. We also run a programme of outreach work in the community. We are a self-funded charity at a very exciting stage in its development having obtained planning permission to extend the premises.

The position

We are looking to recruit a tutor to run our Monday Afternoon and Monday evening Oil Painting classes. The successful candidate will be responsible for tutoring the class during term time (12 weeks) which includes preparing the lessons, setting up and tidying the studio before/after the session and tutoring the students.  The person may also be expected to run some workshops during the holidays.

Based at the Centre, you will lead a small class made up of students of all abilities aged from 16 upwards.  Experience of oil painting tutoring is essential as well as a relevant and up to date DBS check.  The ideal candidate will have an art and teaching qualification and be available to start from September 2022.

If you would like further information or to apply, please contact Laura Burns, Centre Director or post to Courtyard Arts & Community Centre, Port Vale, Hertford SG14 3AA or phone 01992 509596.
