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!
