OCAC is hiring an RA for their Pre-College Residency Program

Do you like art? Working with high school students?

Would you like to live in Portland for the month of July with full room and board? What about if I told you it was on the campus of the most beautiful art school in Portland? 

Well, OCAC is hiring an RA to work with the students, faculty, and staff for their Pre-College Residency Program! You’ll pretty much have the days free while they’re in class, but will work in the evenings to make sure the students are okay. You’ll also be accompanying them on adventures about Portland and Oregon like studio visits and trips to local landmarks like the Oregon Coast and Timberline.

Like i said, the job will include full room an board on OCAC’s campus, as well as stipend. 

Send me an e-mail at jonathan [ at ] oneofthejohns.com and I’ll pass along the informational PDF about the job.

Hey-o! It’s summertime, which means I’m offering a bunch of comics classes at OCAC for middle schoolers and high schoolers! 

We’re also doing this awesome Pre-College residency program where you live on or commute to campus for a month and learn comics, metals, photography, printmaking, and painting. You get college credit for it too! We’re also doing lots of studio visits and field trips to places like the Oregon Coast and the Timberline Lodge. It’s going to be amazing!

If you know any young adults into comics and live in Portland or are visiting, pass this link along!
