At the Cathedral Arts Project, our vision is for every child in Northeast Florida to have access to a well-rounded, arts-rich education that endows his or her spirit with the imagination, self-confidence and strength of character that inspires great leadership and a will to succeed. Our mission is to enrich the quality of life in Northeast Florida through unleashing the creative spirit of young people. By providing access to instruction in the visual and performing arts, we empower underserved, school-aged children to succeed in all areas of their lives.
For many of our students, when they create a work of art or complete a musical, dramatic or dance performance, it is the first time in their lives they have accomplished something positive and beautiful. Seeing their work on exhibit or hearing applause while on stage, they realize they are successful, valuable individuals, and as such have a future beyond their current social and economic situations. They are motivated to set goals, finish school and become productive adults. We are committed to serving the children and youth of Northeast Florida and believe participation in the arts can be the catalyst for extraordinary change.
We believe all children deserve instruction in the visual and performing arts. In principle and in practice, the Cathedral Arts Project aims to provide equal access to arts instruction, regardless of nationality, ethnicity, race, gender, disability, religion, sexual orientation and geographic location within our service area of Duval County, Florida.
Teaching artists are responsible for standards-based instruction of a visual or performing arts class. Successful candidates should have established classroom management and curriculum development skills specific to Title 1 schools and must be flexible, versatile and willing to pivot their teaching and plans as needed.
The Cathedral Arts Project currently has several openings for teaching artists, including:
– Visual Arts | Boys and Girls Club (January – July)
– All disciplines | MaliVai Washington Youth Foundation (January – May)
– All disciplines | Global Outreach Charter Academy (June – July)
– All disciplines | Summer Camp Teaching Artists (June – July)

Summer Camp Coordinator
The Cathedral Arts Project provides quality, standards-based instruction in four arts disciplines during the summer months, sustaining learning for students who receive school day and/or afterschool instruction and engaging new students who do not have access to school-based arts education during the academic year. This continued engagement in the arts is essential for students to retain knowledge gained during the school year and reinforce the critical thinking, communication and character-building skills necessary to achieve artistic, academic and personal success.
The Summer Camp Coordinator will work in coordination with CAP’s Program Team and is responsible for the on-site coordination, operation and support of the summer camp. The Summer Camp Coordinator will ensure effective and cohesive operation on a day-to-day basis of the training, support and supervision of all teaching artists, interns and volunteers; camper wellness and the administering of medication and/or first aid; and administrative responsibilities where and when applicable.
