Call for Online Course Proposals

Hosted by Workman Arts

Workman Arts invites instructors to propose accessible and inclusive online courses for our 2021/2022 training program. Instructors will develop and teach workshops and classes for our artist membership, units at CAMH (as part of our Art Cart program in collaboration with Gifts of Light) and/or the greater Toronto Arts community with partner organizations.

Workman Arts provides multi-disciplinary, professional art workshops for and by artists with lived experience of mental health and/or addictions issues. Workman Arts aims to support member artists through community support, access to free studio space, materials, equipment, free art training as well as professional development and presentation opportunities.

We are looking for artists that have developed skills or technical experience in a range of disciplines that may include (but are not limited to): Painting, Drawing, Printmaking, Sculpture, Textile Art, Photography, Media Arts, Filmmaking, Podcasting, Animation, Performance, Theatre, Movement, Poetry, Prose, Playwriting, Songwriting and/or Music Composition.

We recognize all forms of knowledge acquisition and invite instructors from all backgrounds to apply; academic experience is not necessary. We prioritize hiring members or artists with lived experience.
