Role description

The Museum is seeking a skilled creative practitioner to lead the 2021-2022 season of the Saturday Art Club, based at the National Maritime Museum. They will design and deliver creative sessions for young people aged 13-16 years, covering a range of different art forms and topics, drawing on the unique collections and providing high quality creative experiences.

The club provides a platform for young people to learn new creative skills, to gain Bronze and Silver Arts Award Accreditation, be inspired by the Museum’s collections and to socialise with their peers. The Museum’s club is part of the National Saturday Club initiative.

Due to the impact of COVID19, the Museum will implement strict social distancing as recommended by the government. This may mean some Saturday Art Club sessions will be required to take place online. The Saturday Art club tutor must be confident in using digital platforms to deliver sessions and adaptable to also deliver physical on site sessions at the Museum, when this is safe to do so. Sessions will last 3 hours and will take place on a weekly basis during term-time. They will develop a positive working relationship with the young people as they support them through this 6 month programme, which will begin October 2021.
