WE ARE ALWAYS ACCEPTING
We always welcome inquiries from potential new instructors and for new classes. As part of our mission we hold classes not only to teach performance, fine, and production art skills, but also to help artisans make a living from their craft. If you have an art, craft, skill, and/or expertise in performance and fine art and a passion for teaching, we would love to help you share it.
FAQS FOR INSTRUCTORS
Why should I become a teacher at the Collaborative?
You are giving people the ability to make themselves better. You would teach people how to safely and effectively use their skills and the tools available to them. You’re helping your community, having fun and making some money doing something you already love to do.
Can I set my own class schedule?
We will work with you to find times that don’t conflict other classes, and can offer input as to what has worked well in the past.
How much could I make?
Teachers of group classes get around half of class tuition. How much you make will depend on the market value of the type of class you’re offering and how many of those seats fill.
Instructors can also set up private lessons in our space when it’s available — you can set your own rates, but we ask for $10/hr of the revenue in exchange for the use of our facilities, and we ask you not to monopolize the relevant shop area.
Would I have help advertising my classes?
We do publicity for all our classes and reach most students through our website or email newsletters. Instructors who reach out to their own network and put some effort into marketing do see a pay off for their efforts as well.
We’re teaching sometimes dangerous processes. As an instructor, is my liability protected?
Our waivers and insurance indemnify your actions, so long as you are not acting in gross negligence. Greene Room Productions has general liability insurance insuring ‘natural born persons acting as instructors or consultants’ and employees of Greene Room Productions. If you would like to teach under a corporate umbrella, we request that you obtain your own general liability insurance, and name Greene Room Productions as additionally insured.
What if I want to teach something unrelated performance and fine art?
While it’s not our top priority, but we’ll certainly consider it! We’ll want some demonstration of interest in the class, either from a group you know will attend or our own members.
