YAYA’s mission is to empower creative young people to become successful adults. We provide educational experiences in the arts and entrepreneurship to New Orleans-area children and youth, fostering and supporting their individual ambitions.
YAYA seeks a part-time assistant and technician for our public access glass studio to work alongside our Studio Manager. The glass studio serves several audiences: YAYA Guild Artists (teens), who work in the studio two evenings per week; professional glass artists who rent time in our studio; amateur and beginner artists who take glass and ceramics classes; and YAYA’s broader public audience through demos and other events. The Hot Shop Assistant will interact with all of these audiences and must be comfortable working with artists at all ages and skills levels, and passionate about sharing the art of glass.
