The Education Department of The Frick Collection is now accepting applications for its Teaching Fellows Program, which prepares highly motivated undergraduate art history majors and graduate students in the humanities to lead Guided School Visits for schoolchildren in grades 5 through 12. This wonderful opportunity to teach from original works of art begins with one year of intensive training, followed by a second year of teaching in the galleries. During the first year, Teaching Fellows will meet on select Fridays for training sessions, which will focus on the Frick’s permanent collection and museum pedagogy. Additionally, Teaching Fellows will conduct independent research at the Frick Art Reference Library, practice dialogical teaching, shadow Guided School Visits on weekday mornings, attend after-hours Education programs, and go on occasional field trips to neighboring museums. Beyond receiving an introduction to museum education and a teaching practicum, Teaching Fellows will find community at the Frick and receive compensation in recognition of their commitment to gallery teaching. The Teaching Fellows Program is generously underwritten by General Growth Properties with additional funding from Alan J. Barocas.
Applications will be accepted at the beginning of the fall semester. When available, application instructions will be posted on the Careers page.
