Inspire the next generation of artists…
Steve and Kate’s Camp is looking for creative, hard working Ceramics, Sewing, and Knitting Specialists who have the desire to guide, teach, and inspire Kindergarten through 7th grade children.
Specialists work directly with campers on projects of the camper’s choosing. Specialists should be comfortable developing project ideas, demonstrating and teaching skills and techniques, making project examples, and sharing insights to simplify the learning process. Specialists are responsible for managing equipment and supplies, implementing systems to ensure the Studio runs smoothly, and communicating with Directors and other staff members.
We are looking for responsible, imaginative staff members who have a sense of humor and plenty of energy. The ideal candidates have demonstrated experience in their specialty, a desire to share their knowledge with children, and strong communication and interpersonal skills. This is a rare opportunity to further your artistic skills and abilities and gain instruction experience in a fun and creative environment. Each studio is described below:
The ancient art of pottery-making is alive and kicking at Steve & Kate's. Campers learn to throw, glaze and fire a wide range of vessels on professional potter's wheels - cups, bowls, plates, teapots. That's just the start. We also help our junior Rodins to sculpt figurines, creatures, animals, statues and sprawling cityscapes. Pottery Barn, eat your heart out.
Campers master fundamental sewing and knitting skills to style their own hip garments, plus accessories they can literally wear on their sleeves. They decode knitting charts and lay out pattern pieces to design chic purses, hats, skirts, board shorts, pajamas and tunics. Knitting stitches like garter, stockinette and purl become second nature. Zigzagging, basting and straight stitching on the sewing machine are child's play. Applying decorative techniques like fabric printing and embroidery, little fashionistas add their unique flair to their creations. Camp fashion shows are a who's who of Steve & Kate's A-listers.
We're the people who introduced individualized learning in a summer camp setting. Pioneered flexible enrollment and automatic refunds. Integrated a custom food program with locally grown organics. Implemented technology so aggressively that Apple Computer featured us on their website. We've grown from one site to twenty-four in the last few years. We continually reinvent the entire concept of summer camp for the modern era. Our philosophy and approach is what has set us apart from other camps since 1980. Take a closer look at what those differences are on our website at www.steveandkate.com.
