Description: Founded in 1863, Saint Mary's is a residential campus nestled 20 miles east of San Francisco in the picturesque Moraga Valley. Based in the Catholic, Lasallian and Liberal Arts traditions, Saint Mary's currently enrolls more than 4,000 students from diverse backgrounds in undergraduate and graduate programs. The De La Salle Christian Brothers, the largest teaching order of the Roman Catholic Church, guide the spiritual and academic character of the College.

As a comprehensive and independent institution, Saint Mary's offers undergraduate and graduate programs integrating liberal and professional education. Saint Mary's reputation for excellence, innovation and responsiveness in education stems from its vibrant heritage as a Catholic, Lasallian and Liberal Arts institution. An outstanding, committed faculty and staff that value shared inquiry, integrative learning and student interaction bring these traditions to life in the 21st century. The College is committed to the educational benefits of diversity.

Saint Mary's College seeks to hire a per-course adjunct faculty member to teach Art 001, Studio Art, in the undergraduate program in Spring 2021. This course requires that the instructor provide synchronous, in-person instruction for at least 30% of the course.

Tuesdays & Thursdays, 3:00 - 4:40pm

This course introduces beginning students to the processes of art practice. The class engages students in a self-selected project based workflow, accompanied by creative research in both academic and artistic environments. It is important to emphasize that this course is not vocational in that it does not aim to teach specific skill sets, rather to introduce students to the processes of artists, ranging from experimentation with materials, to critique, to research into subject areas and/or artworks/artists relevant to the student's concentration. The class functions as a laboratory for experimentation with multi-media work, collaboration and documentation.

Candidates must posses a Bachelor's Degree, preferably also an MA or MFA, and have experience teaching undergraduate students.
