The Old Jail Art Center is currently seeking part-time instructors for its Art-To-Go school outreach program. 


Art-To-Go is the primary school outreach program for the Old Jail Art Center.

Instructors for the OJAC Education Department make monthly visits to various Region 14 Campuses, providing thematic lessons to K-12 audiences that address current social and cultural issues as referenced in the museum collection.

At each monthly program, Art-To-Go instructors lead observation and discussion of educational videos, books and collection art works connected to that month’s theme, followed by a studio making activity.

This program is provided free to participating schools; including 8 monthly visits and a travel stipend encouraging a field trip to the OJAC in the final month(s) of the school year.  Contracted ATG Instructors travel to participating schools for 8 monthly visits, and to the OJAC in the final month to lead a concluding tour and making activity.
