Interested in teaching a $MART Art Workshop?

We are seeking artists to teach workshops on a wide range of topics and subjects in our $MART Art Space.

  • Subjects that are approachable to all skill levels.
  • Inclusive to a wide range of ages!
  • Affordable projects that do not require investment in expensive materials or tools, or utilizes the tools available in our $MART Art Space.

Artists will be paid for their time, and asked to assist with spreading the word.  We will set the ticket price to cover materials costs, so there will be a minimum enrollment required to hold the class.  If you would like to team up with another artist to offer a duo workshop, we can work with that too!
