Redwood Day School is an East Bay leader in developmentally grounded education that prepares students for high school, for college, and for life. Established in 1963, RDS is an independent, diverse K-8 school that combines challenging academics, small classes, differentiated instruction, and a keen awareness of children's social and emotional development — allowing students to discover and build on their strengths as individual learners. Our learning community is closely connected to our Oakland neighbors through an ethos of service, diversity, and sustainability. Our students develop into self-aware and confident young people who advocate for themselves and others, throughout school and beyond.
Visual art classes in the lower school emphasize exploration and expression of one's creativity through a variety of media. Lessons build upon each other as students become more confident in their skills and willing to take greater risks as they approach more complex projects each year. Middle school students explore various techniques and design principles used in the creative process in Art Studio. Across all grade levels, interdisciplinary projects are created with many other classes to complement subjects taught in core curriculum. We seek to inspire young artists. Technically, we are looking for someone with experience in drawing, painting, sculpture, and ceramics. Above all, this person must love young people.
