Teen Lounge Teaching Artists
Teen Lounge at Fleisher Art Memorial is accepting project proposals from teaching artists for paid teaching residencies! Teen Lounge is a free, drop-in after school arts program providing young people ages 13-19 with opportunities to meet and collaborate with working Philly artists.
In light of COVID-19, Teen Lounge programming will be partially online — we’re seeking four teaching artists to share their knowledge, creativity and inspiration either virtually or IRL. Our Fall term runs from September 8 — October 27.
Human Resources Generalist
Fleisher’s Human Resources Generalist performs all human resource functions as they pertain to Fleisher and as dictated by the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Acting as the liaison between Fleisher staff and the Philadelphia Museum of Art’s Human Resources Department, the HR Generalist addresses all questions or concerns that may arise concerning employee recruitment and internal department policies and procedures throughout the Fleisher Art Memorial.
As a member of the Maintenance Staff, the Custodian is responsible for set-up for activities in preparation for classes and events, maintaining the overall cleanliness of the facility to ensure a welcoming environment for all of Fleisher’s guests. The Custodian reports to the Facilities Manager, but must be able to work with all program managers. You will be able to operate with minimal supervision and anticipate needs as situations arise.
Community Partnerships in the Arts Teaching Artist
Since 1997, Fleisher has partnered with K-8 public schools and social service agencies in South Philadelphia to bring hands-on art-making directly to students. Through a co-teaching model, Fleisher’s Teaching Artist works closely with a classroom teacher to design a ten-week curriculum of creative projects that enhance students’ learning in core subjects, like math, science, social studies, and language arts, while developing studio and technical skills in the visual arts. Each year, 345 students are provided with 30 hours of free arts instruction in one of 15 arts-integrated residencies, and given a sketchbook and art-making supplies to keep.
Are you interested in teaching at Fleisher? We evaluate candidates for teaching positions on an ongoing basis.

Fleisher has a need for figure models of all types to pose for life drawing and painting classes, and accepts applications on a rolling basis. The environment is professional and welcoming, and the students have a range of experience.
