TEACHING

The Arts Warehouse offers classroom space for professional artists to conduct workshops, lectures, or classes. Artists must apply and be accepted to the Arts Warehouse Art Educator Program prior to scheduling any classes or soliciting students.

In this self-directed program, Art Educators will determine their own class schedule, syllabus, and workshop content. Arts Warehouse will provide the space, tables, chairs, limited floor easels, and access to shared studio equipment for up to 16 students, depending on space used.
