Reports To: Director of Education and Community Engagement

POSITION SUMMARY:

The Hunterdon Art Museum, which specializes in contemporary art, craft, and design, exhibits work by internationally recognized artists as well as emerging artists. The Museum presents approximately twelve exhibitions and offers more than 200 studio classes and workshops for adults and children as well as summer art camps annually. In addition, the Museum works with area schools and provides guided tours and other community programs.

We are seeking a full-time Education Coordinator, who will be involved in managing all aspects of our very busy Education Department. The Coordinator will report to and work closely with the Director of Education and Community Engagement. Responsibilities will range from registering students, tracking enrollments, sending regular program updates to HAM instructors, staff, and students, and scheduling offerings such as private lessons and group tours to maintaining studios, ordering supplies, interacting with program participants, teachers, and the general public, leading tours, creating gallery materials, such as Family Guides, and assisting with the development of new education programs.

The Education Coordinator will also play a lead role on the Museum’s long-running Young Artists Showcase (YAS), Summer Camp, and Scouts programs. YAS is a program that involves partnering with approximately 30 local schools each year to exhibit their students’ artwork with goals of celebrating both the art student and teacher. Summer Camp typically runs for nine weeks each summer and includes an active schedule of half-day AM & PM sessions, as well as Lunch with the Bunch, for area children. In both cases, the Education Coordinator’s responsibilities are equal parts administrative and hands-on. For Summer Camp, the Education Coordinator will work closely with the Summer Camp Assistant to oversee HAM Helpers and ensure sessions run smoothly.

WORK SCHEDULE:

Full-time. Monday-Friday from 9am–5pm, with occasional evenings and weekends.

During Summer Camp (June 17-Aug 16), hours shift to 7:30am-4:30pm (M) and 8am–4:30pm (T-F); OT will be paid during this period.

SALARY: $31,500, non-exempt

QUALIFICATIONS:

The ideal candidate possesses strong computer, communication, organizational, interpersonal, and presentation skills. They should demonstrate the ability to meet deadlines, multi-task, thrive in a fast- paced environment, and work independently.
