Grimsby Public Art Gallery (GPAG) offers a variety of school programs, classes, and workshops for all age groups and ability levels to engage its community in arts and culture through the process of making. GPAG provides the community with access to art through engaging and educational ways of interacting with art-making, and expanding understandings of what creating and art can look like.
GPAG is seeking artist instructors to lead youth and adult programs as well as on-call educational activities supporting long term care and elementary and secondary school tours. Applications will be accepted on an ongoing basis. Instructional programming operates as either stand-alone workshops or as a session. Sessions typically run 3-4 weeks in length on a monthly basis, Tuesday and Thursday evenings and Saturdays during the day.

Classes and workshops range between 1-4hrs with additional set-up and clean-up time. Instructors are paid a rate of $30/hr.
