Teaching Opportunities

We have two distinct pools of opportunity for you to explore here at the Art Center: working within our on-site Studio School and teaching outside groups through our educational outreach programming, which is both on- and off-site.


The Visual Arts Center of New Jersey is always looking for talented art educators and instructors to join our Studio School team.

The Studio School offers classes for children and adults. The salaries are based on payment per class: children’s classes are 1.5 hours and pay $65/class; teen classes are 2 hours and pay $70/class; and adult classes are 2.5 hours and pay $75/class.

If you are interested in being considered as a teaching artist, fill out the new instructor form.
