Arts Administration

Director of Education and Community Outreach


Center for the Arts Evergreen, 2011


Developed a strong education program for CAE; designed class and camp schedules; solicited and contracted teachers and produced the class schedule; and was responsible for the maintenance of classrooms, studios and supplies. I had 
the responsibility of coordinating both of CAE’s two major arts festivals, Summerfest and Winterfest; solicited artist vendors and food vendors; obtained permits; secured rental of venues and I worked with the Director of Marketing on designing festival publicity, marketing 
strategies and graphics. This job required computer skills, attention to detail and, a good knowledge of art educational practices and of art materials and mediums. In this position I was required to be a self-starter and possess excellent organizational, communication, and people skills.
