Forwarding this, which was sent to me through my art group. I currently
also teach at Palo Alto Art Center ( ceramics) and can vouch that it is an
awesome place to work. If interested, please reply to the contact in the
below paragraph and not to me, thx!

"Hi, Would you know of any women artist/engineers interested and available
to teach summer classes in the first two weeks of August at the Palo Alto
Arts Center? It's $1600 to teach 4 classes. I really wanted to teach the
classes and to be in CA, missing friends so much! But my PhD
studies/symposium around this time will be too much. And there was an offer
to stay in Mountainview, but it fell through.
I really would like to have another woman to teach the classes as it took
so long to get girls interested in the class. Descriptions are below, but
feel free to use the descriptions to fit the teacher's interests. Materials
list is due this week but I can send that in. Also I can send curriculum to
the teacher. The main component is the battery and motor and teaching
thinking about invention and how things work. No kits, everyone's project
is unique. Can be instrument-building too, teaching about sound. I've done
this in the past. Most materials are recycled, free, that the Art Center
collects. Lots of playing with hot glue--volunteers help kids with this.
Also they have a lot of cool materials in the basement including the
motors. Please let me know and I can pass a teacher's name along to Palo
Alto Arts Center, thanks!

Feel free to have any one interested call me with questions: 212-300-7970 (on
East coast time).
