Mid-City Artisans wants to give back to the community and one way is to support the arts in our schools. We have reached out to a small number schools initially to discuss how we can assist them during the school year. We will include more schools as the program gets going.
We know you are busy and we want you making things but we need your expertise to share with the next generation. We are working to ensure that we have enough artisans from the various disciplines to spread the 'work' around. As we meet with the schools we will be able to share the level of time commitments required. We have over 120 artisans so if most everyone helps the time commitments will be limited. We also offer workshops and classes to the general public.
Support the Schools:
We are anticipating needing volunteers for:
Guest speakers to speak at several of the schools.
Instructors for student workshops.
Judges for art contests held in conjunction with the schools.
We will host “student maker” shows including our quarterly Kids Makers Market. We offer exhibitions for schools as well.
We have scheduled a “Art Show & Wine” event every Friday and strongly encourage you to participate and interact with our clients. We will feature a different artisan each week so your time requirement will be minimal. We will contact you to participate.
We will be a host for the annual White Lights Nights in November and strongly encourage you to be at our shop for this event. It will bring in hundreds of people that Friday night.
Other special events will be held occasionally that we may ask you to attend.
We have two separate classrooms in our Art Learning Center allowing us to offer multiple classes. Please let us know which classes you wish to teach. We are offering classes for kids, special needs adults, and adults. These classes will be offered at a cost and you will be compensated as a percentage of the ticket price. We will advertise, provide the room, and handle all the logistics.
