Comic Book Jobs: Chicago High School for The Arts

How To Draw Comics The Marvel WayYou know what's almost as good as drawing comics? Teaching about drawing comics.

The Chicago High School for the Arts is looking for a "part time sequential instructor" for the 2012-2013 school year. You'll be part of the school's Visual Arts department.

They're looking for "a specialist in the field," someone who "will have the passion and skills to create a learning environment that will offer a rigorous pre-professional arts training that challenge students to achieve at high levels." The lucky teacher will be teaching Sequential Art as it's applied to "character design, storyboarding, comic illustration, narrative illustration."

But it's strictly part time: a 3 hour studio class to take place "on Tuesdays or Thursdays."

Are there qualifications? You bet!

There's a requirement of at least a minimum of  (7) years professional experience in the field and a minimum (4) years previous teaching experience at a pre-professional or professional level. "Experience working with high school students is preferred but may not be required."

If you're already in the Chicago area, this looks worth checking out.
