From HULL! Teaching Opportunities

The Hull Artists Association is excited to expand our programming to better serve the needs of our community.  We received a grant from the Hull Cultural Council to provide “Creative Art and Craft Classes” at the Hull Council on Aging (COA) Senior Center.  We are seeking instructors to teach introductory art classes covering a variety of media techniques. The topics are up to the teachers.  Most classes are expected to be “hands-on” in which participants will leave with a finished piece of artwork.   Hull Artists and/or the COA will pay a nominal stipend of $50 per class session, up to a $100 maximum as well as reimburse the instructor for supplies up to $50.  Classes can be offered Mon-Thurs.  The full prospectus may be viewed and downloaded at the HA website: https://hullartists.com/classes/ or contact HA at classes@hullartists.com.
