Art Teacher

Throughout the three week course, the Art Teacher will introduce a wide variety of artistic techniques and styles, covering skills such as line drawing and oil painting to more contemporary practices such as sculpting and cartoon illustration. This programme allows for all levels and abilities to uncover their artistic potential and develop their own unique style.

As an ISSOS teacher you have your own class of international students aged between 13-18 years old. ISSOS ensures that classes are kept small in order to provide individual attention, personalised instruction and create an encouraging and supportive environment for students to learn while having fun and making new friends from around the world. Although we provide every teacher a guide as to what each lesson should achieve, we encourage teachers to bring their own experience and personality to each class and create their own stimulating and challenging lesson plans.

ISSOS is looking for charismatic, inspirational individuals who are experienced in their field and have experience in leading, motivating and encouraging a group of young people.
