As an Instructor
Springwater Studio is always accepting applications for Instructors. Are you interested in teaching a class at Springwater Studio? Great! Here’s what you need to know…
Springwater Studio is a community art center committed to Building Community to experience life, growth, & healing through the Creative Process.
There are many ways you can teach through the studio
As a fine arts instructor
Fine arts instructors are trained artists who have experience teaching others. They work in mediums such as paint, ceramics, or drawing and they focus on teaching skills to their students. Fine arts instructors are paid $30/hour for teaching time and $10/hour for set-up and clean-up time.
As a craft workshop facilitator
Craft workshop facilitators may be practitioners of a craft or they may be interested laypeople. They may teach a crafty skill such as knitting, collage, or woodworking. They may also guide the students in completing a craft project together. Examples may include a workshop on making prayer beads, or a workshop on making a driftwood mobile. Craft workshops focus on bringing people together to do something creative. Craft workshop facilitators who are experienced instructors may be paid $30/hour for teaching time and $10/hour for set-up and clean-up time.
As a group coordinator
Group coordinators bring people together to practice a common creative or healing activity. Examples may include bluegrass jam sessions, centering prayer groups, book groups, or crafting groups. Group coordinators are not paid but may receive free or discounted classes from the studio.
Is your interest piqued? Good. Once you’ve chosen how you’d like to teach in the studio, you can fill out a class proposal form. The class proposals are evaluated by the Springwater guild, who then puts together seasonal studio schedules. The guild is looking especially for class proposals that:
- Combine creativity and spirituality
- Meet unmet needs in the community
- Target children
- Are interesting and creative.
Your idea doesn’t fit what we’ve described above? No problem! Convince us it’s worth a second look.
2. Send an email to email@example.com letting us know you’ve filled it out.
You will receive a confirmation of receipt within one week in most cases.
If you have an idea for a class or a workshop that isn’t a good fit for Springwater Studio at the moment, you can always rent the studio and offer the class independently. For more information on rentals, click here.
