Instructor Application

If you are interested in becoming an instructor, employed by the Macoupin Art Collective, please fill out the form below, and we will get back to you to discuss details.

  • We generally pay our instructors an hourly rate of $20 per hour of instruction, plus a half-hour of preparation time per class session. If an instructor comes in to The MAC to prepare for a class that does not require pre-registration, and no students show up for the class, we will pay the instructor for one hour to compensate them for travel and preparation time.

  • We pay our instructors this way, rather than per student, so that we can maintain a consistent pricing structure. As such, we require a certain number of students per class to remain profitable, and we expect instructors to assist us in promoting their classes.

  • If this doesn't work for you, please feel free to start a conversation in the 'Other Notes' section of the instructor application form, and we'll see if we can work something out. But remember, we are a budding nonprofit community organization dedicated to arts and crafts education (especially for kids in our community... and yes... we're shamelessly trying to tug at your heartstrings a little bit), and we can use all the help we can get!
