Submit a proposal to teach at Arlene's


The Atelier at Arlene’s is a collaborative partnership between Arlene's Artist Materials and our instructors. Together, we are dedicated to delivering the highest quality art education to our students. The Atelier at Arlene’s invites proposals from qualified artists and art educators to enrich our studio program. Our commitment is to provide a well-rounded studio curriculum that encompasses technical skill development and fosters the exploration of creativity.

Within our studio program, we offer a diverse array of classes and workshops covering drawing, painting media, bookbinding, hand-building, art journaling, and more. We actively seek instructors who bring excitement, passion for teaching, a positive can-do attitude, and the ability to create transformative art education experiences for adult students of all backgrounds. Successful candidates should demonstrate dexterity and expertise in the relevant media and subject matter.

Instructors are expected to be dynamic contributors to their field, engaging in the community on a whole, exhibitions, markets, and residencies alongside their teaching responsibilities. We welcome passionate educators to join us in shaping an inspiring and enriching artistic learning environment.
