At The Arts Center we have numerous opportunities for artists and arts educators. We don’t publicize this enough! We’re always looking for artists to exhibit, teach and be involved. In a nutshell, I think those that work with us would say we strive for excellence and uniqueness in our programs while remaining accessible and above all having fun. Now doesn’t that sound like an awesome place get involved?
Whether you enjoy teaching adults or kids we have need of teaching artists. There are several employment options for artists who are willing to teach classes on a contractual basis.
