We are seeking new teachers!
Hello friends!
We are seeking artists, artisans and writers to instruct community art classes. These classes can cover just about any artistic genre, e.g., painting, fiber arts, mixed media, jewelry making, writing, various crafts, etc.

Instructors design their classes: examples — a one-time workshop, a course of 3-6 weeks or weekly on-going classes.

We have a class proposal worksheet for you to fill out. This helps you walk through exactly what you need (and we need) to start teaching here – and includes our policies.
WORKSHEET: https://forms.gle/CgntSPTwABuqnzcu7

We also have an interview/mock class process for new teachers – you must demonstrate your project/work to our education chair.

We have fabulous teachers here and wish to expand our offerings of more creative and fun classes to our community, taught by artists who also love to teach!

We offer classes for all ages – children, teens and adults – and all levels of experience – beginners to advanced.
