Teaching Artists and Youth Educators

The Lillian Orlowsky and William Freed Museum School at PAAM is always looking to expand its faculty of local teaching artists.

Programs for adults and youth include our intensive summer program, and fall, winter and spring classes; the Lenore Ross Curating Program for local schools and teachers; and our award-winning Art Reach, Art on the Edge and Reaching Forward Mentor Programs for children, teens and college-age students. Workshops run from one day to multi-week sessions throughout the year. Grant and donor funded youth programs run October – May and may require a one day to multi-semester teaching commitment.


Media includes painting, drawing, printmaking, mixed media and sculpture, plein air painting, art history, photography, computers, film. Classes may take place at PAAM or off-site in the Artist’s in their Studio’s program.


Curating programs include traditional media listed above, along with projects that focus on comic books, digital and stop motion animation, digital game design, graphic novels, murals, installation art, and digital music. Classes take place in the Museum School at PAAM or in participating schools. The Museum School is a green, non-toxic studio environment and prohibits the use of toxic materials accordingly.

We are particularly interested in teaching artists who have a clear relationship with Provincetown and Cape Cod and/or who have experience offering children and teens creative, project-based classes and workshops of the highest caliber.

For year-round adult classes/workshops send a cover letter, course proposal(s), biography and résumé to Kiah Coble at kiah@paam.org. For youth program/curating program teaching opportunities applicants should send a cover letter, course proposal(s), biography and résumé to Lynn Stanley at lstanley@paam.org. No phone calls please.
