Call for Workshop Proposals

AX is accepting workshop proposals in Fine Art, Fine Craft, Writing, Music, and the Creative Process for youth and adults.

Workshop formats can be flexible. For example, workshops may be single half-day or full-day classes, after school programs, week-long March Break (for youth) or summer workshops, or 4-6 consecutive weeks of 1 ½ hr – 3 hr sessions, as your workshop requires.

AX can work with you to help determine a suitable time and fee schedule, and can help publicize and manage registration and fee collection from participants.

Note: For those working with youth, AX requires a Criminal Record Check.
