Call for Workshop & Program Instructors

Arts Underground / Yukon Art Society accepts proposals for workshops, classes, and other programs on an ongoing basis. We offer professional art instruction programs in a variety of media, techniques, and theory, as well as professional development. Programs take many forms, including multi-week courses, weekend or single-day workshops, open studios, one-time talks, and after school programs and week-long camps for kids.

Instructors must provide a clear vulnerable sector records check, and are responsible for designing and executing programs with the assistance of the YAS Program Administrator for coordination, including the acquisition of necessary supplies. YAS takes on the responsibilities of promotion, setting program fees, and managing registrations. Instructors are compensated for instruction time and for one hour of preparation per individual session. Adult evening classes commonly run for one 2.5-hour class per week for six weeks, or one 3-hour class per week for seven weeks for ceramics/pottery classes, and usually start at 7 p.m. Duration and times of weekend or single-day workshops and talks are variable. Kids' after school programs run for one 1.5-hour class per week for six weeks from 3:30 – 5 p.m., while kids' camps run from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. Monday though Friday.
