Instructor Proposals

Interested in teaching an art class at Greenville Center for Creative Arts?

GCCA instructors include both working artists and professional educators. We are looking for artists doing interesting work who are also excellent teachers. Our instructors possess a willingness to communicate technique and process, strong technical skills, good interpersonal skills, and the ability to teach classes that are open to a range of skill levels, from intermediate to advanced.

Instructors are contract employees who are paid based on an hourly rate for the time they spend in the classroom. GCCA offers seven sessions per year (class sessions listed below). Within each session, we offer multiple class formats. Our shortest workshops require just a one-day commitment, and our longest classes run for 6 weeks.

Winter Session I:  January 6 ­- February 14, 2020                                                       Winter Session II:  February 24 ­- April 3, 2020                                                               Spring Session:  April 20 - May 29, 2020                                                                    Summer Session I:  June 3 - July 23, 2019                                                               Summer Session II:  July 24 - September 3, 2019                                                           Fall Session I:  September 9 - October 20, 2019                                                          Fall Session II:  October 28 - December 8, 2019

To be considered for a teaching position at GCCA, submit the form that follows (proposal deadlines for each session are listed below). The proposal form lets us learn more about you, your practice, and asks for a simple course proposal. Successful course proposals compliment but don’t compete with what’s already in our curriculum. We don’t always have room to bring on new instructors, but we always enjoy meeting new artists, and at the very least, we’ll keep your proposal on file. Once submitted, we will review your proposal and contact you if we need more information or would like to discuss your proposal further. Contact Director of Programming, Liz Rundorff Smith at liz@artcentergreenville.org if you have any questions about the instructor proposal process or GCCA instructors.
