Ever wanted to teach a workshop?

Instructors Wanted!


Art Central is putting together its workshop and demonstration schedule for the months of April through June.

Would you be interested in being an instructor? 
You may opt to teach a demo, workshop, or both. We advertise our demonstrations and workshops through Facebook and our blog.  However, we have found that instructors who also use their own mailing and contact list usually have greater enrollment. Demonstrations are free to the public – think of any demo of your chosen medium or technique.  This can be a great way for you to advertise yourself as an instructor!  Participants for demonstrations sign up through Art Central. Workshops are “mini-classes”.  The cost of a workshop is up to each instructor.  Instructors pay a fee of $5 per hour (minimum of 3 hours) to Art Central for the use of our space.  We supply tables and chairs.  For workshops, students will contact you directly for registration and payment.  It is up to each instructor to establish a minimum or maximum number of students per class.  Generally, depending on how much space each student requires, 10 – 12 students would fill our space.  We ask that at least some of the materials used in the workshop be available for sale at Art Central.  We can stock the supplies for your students if you provide us with a materials list. 

From past workshop and demo experiences, we have found that weekends seem to work best for students and instructors.  Feel free, however, to schedule your workshop/demo any day of the week.  We ask that you start the workshop no earlier than an hour after we open, and end it no later than an hour before we close.   Store hours are  Mon-Fri 10am-5:30pm,  Sat 10am-5pm,  Sun 12pm-4pm

We have limited parking at Art Central and ask that instructors let students know that they will be asked to park along Monterey or another side street. We will be scheduling workshop and demonstration dates on a first come first serve basis.  Please let us know as soon as you can what date/s you would like.

The following dates are NOT available:
April: 1st, 2nd and 9th
May: 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 27th, 28th, 29th and 30th
June: 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 19th
Any other dates from April through June are available – again, first come, first serve!

In summary, we need the following from instructors as soon as possible:
– A title and description of the demo/workshop in this format (including dates, fee, contact info):

Artist’s Name:  “Workshop / Demo Title”
Dates and Time, June 8th, 15th, 22nd, and 29th.  Mon 1-4pm
Fee: $80 for four class series
This drawing class will use flowers and plants for our inspiration.  We will explore various drawing techniques in combination with mixed media. The focus will be unique to each individual’s needs. It may include improving your drawing skills, composition, and or being more playful and experimental with your interpretations.  All levels are welcome! Some materials provided.  Class materials list on hand at Art Central. Contact Artists Name for questions or registration by phone: 555-5555, or email:
