“Teaching Workshops” on September 26, 2017

The Arts & Culture Alliance is pleased to present a professional development seminar for artists and other creative people on Tuesday, September 26, from 5:30-6:30 PM at the Emporium Center in downtown Knoxville. Join us as we welcome Nick DeFord!

Teaching Workshops: Behind the Scenes, In Front of the Blackboard
Teaching short one-day, one-week, or ongoing community workshops is always a great way for an artist, writer, or other creative professional to earn some extra income, and unlike full-time teaching K-12 or at a university, there are no necessary qualifications other than the will to teach. However, many creatives are hesitant to step outside the studio and jump to the front of the classroom. This seminar will discuss what kinds of teaching opportunities are out there, how best to approach an organization to propose a workshop, and then, finally, how to prepare to teach groups of any age.

Please confirm your spot in the workshop via credit card payment here. The presentation fees are:

  • $5 for members of the Arts & Culture Alliance
  • $8 for non-members
  • $63 for a new membership + workshop
