SUMMER 2018: Teen Tutors in Training Program
Tutor Training for Teens
Time: Monday thru Friday: 8:45 am to 3:30 pm (See dates below to choose the week you want)
(ages 12 to 19)
Chris Babcock Art offers teen girls and boys ages 13 to 19 a unique opportunity to receive professional tutor training working with children. Chris Babcock teaches her teen interns the art of conflict resolution, mentoring skills, accountability, teamwork and one-on-one drawing and painting tutoring skills.
Letter of recommendation
To be trained as a tutor at Chris Babcock Art, your teenager should send Chris Babcock a brief letter of recommendation from a teacher stating that your child has basic skills in drawing and painting, strong impulse control, a patient, gentle and kind nature, and enjoys working one-on-one with young children.
Drawing and painting skills
Teen tutor must have taken art lessons to the point that you know how to draw using the grid method and how to shade and highlight using acrylic paints.
IMPORTANT: Please mail your teenager's letter of recommendation to Chris Babcock Art, 5907 California Street, San Francisco, CA 94121
Opportunity to learn the inner workings of an art camp including how to inspire confidence in children as they learn how to draw and paint
Ongoing supervision with positive and encouraging feedback from Chris Babcock and other adult art teachers on how to give one-on-one instruction to a student.
Free access to creating an original 15 by 20-inch acrylic painting between 3:30 and 5 pm at the end of the day. Interns will learn all day every day how to draw and paint using acrylics and this free painting time is a great opportunity for them to relax and apply all they have learned during the day of instruction. Each intern can let Chris Babcock know verbally each day if he or she is staying to work on an acrylic painting after class.
After your intern has had five 5 days of successful internship, he or she will be given a letter of recommendation to add to their high school or college resume. Letter is written upon request after the summer camps are over in Sept. 2018
