Instructor Proposals

Submit a proposal to teach at Arlene's


The Atelier at Arlene’s is a cooperative relationship between Arlene's Artist Materials and our instructors. We work together to bring the best quality art education to our students as possible. The Atelier at Arlene’s seeks proposals from qualified artist educators for our studio program. We do our best to offer a balanced studio curriculum that spans the spectrum of technical skill building to the  discovery and exploration of creativity. Our studio program includes classes and workshops in all drawing and painting media, bookbinding, hand-building, art journaling and more. 


Critical characteristics of instructors include excitement and passion for teaching, a can-do attitude, ability to facilitate a transformative art education experience for adult students of all backgrounds, and dexterity and expertise in the media and topic at hand. In addition to teaching, instructors should be active contributors to their field through participation in research, exhibitions, residencies, and/or conferences.


We are honored to work with such a great team of artists and instructors and are open to working with new people to expand our Atelier at Arlene's Family.
