Application for Art Teacher

Dear Hiring Manager,

As an Art Teacher with 6 years of K-12 experience, alongside 5 years of experience as an Artist and Art Program Coordinator, I apply with enthusiasm for this opportunity.

I am currently a Teaching Artist at Findlater Museum & Galleries in Sunnybank, where I visit schools across the district to guide students interested in exploring challenging themes through art. I provide mentorship, support, and feedback on the work they create, helping them find ways to push their ideas still further. I am passionate about introducing students to a broad range of media to expand their horizons, including painting, drawing, ceramics, printmaking, and sculpture. I aim to ignite a love for art by making projects highly enjoyable and developmentally appropriate.

This experience has given me a strong understanding of effective program planning and evaluating student outcomes and assessments, working closely with teachers, and mentoring a wide range of ages and abilities. I find it a privilege and pleasure to work creatively with the next generation.

In addition to my teaching experience, I hold an MFA and a Bachelor of Education. Art is my passion! Most recently, I exhibited my paintings at the Swan Gallery in Colorado. My work can be viewed at I also organized and led hugely popular children’s art classes, camps, workshops, and family art programs for the gallery.

I have enjoyed my time at Findlater. As schools have switched to online learning for the next school year, I am seeking an in-person opportunity with an equally-stimulating institution. 

Please find attached my résumé for your consideration. Thank you very much for your time. I look forward to hearing from you regarding next steps.

Yours sincerely,

Robert Max
