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 beginning in the next school year. We would also like to offer workshops and classes to the general public. 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 100 artisans so if most everyone helps the time commitments will be limited.
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 to increase new visitors to our store. We have already had our first quarterly Kids Makers Market. We may offer exhibitions for schools as well.
We have scheduled a “Meet the Artisan” event every week and strongly encourage you to participate and interact with our clients. We will feature a different group of two artisans each event so your time requirement will be minimal. You are able to sign up online for these once you have created a login.
We will be a host for the 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.
Special events will be held occasionally that we may ask you to attend.
We have a secured a separate classroom allowing us to offer 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.
