The Art Department at Colorado College is seeking an art studio, design, furniture or architecture MFA to teach two courses in Art Studio Foundations: 3D Design, each lasting 3.5 weeks. The Block 2 course runs from September 27 through October 20, 2021 and the Block 6 course runs from February 21 through March 16, 2022. Some prior teaching experience is required.
Travel expenses are covered by the College and accommodations are available at a moderate cost, which the CC Art Department can help offset with an honorarium for giving a public lecture. The salary for block visitors is competitive, is based upon current CV, and is determined by the Dean of the College. While the course emphasizes the elements and principles associated with 3D design, the exact nature of the course can focus on areas relevant to the visitor’s expertise. Course description:
