NEWS

AS OF AUGUST 2019:

  • Wanted: Art Instructors! The MACC & Senior Center are looking for local artists to teach monthly Senior Visual Art classes for community members ages 55+ at the MACC. Classes take place on the 1st & 3rd Tuesdays of each month, & can encompass any medium (e.g., painting, metalsmithing, eco-printing, drawing, etc.) Teachers are asked to teach both classes in the month, offering the same class on the two separate dates to better accommodate the seniors’ schedules & ensure that there’s enough room for all of those who are interested in taking part. Class capacity is set by the teacher but is typically between 8-16 students per class. Instructors are compensated $100 per class session ($200 for the month). Providing supplies is the responsibility of the teacher to allow for greater control over materials & to cut out the middleman, though the City reimburses supply purchases up to $200/month on top of the instructor stipend. In order to be reimbursed for supply purchases, teachers should turn in all relevant receipts to Tristan Luoma at the MACC before the end of the 2nd If you’re interested in teaching please send your name, teaching experience (if applicable), medium, class ideas, & examples of your work to tluoma@marquettemi.gov. Class schedules are filled on a rolling basis, & by applying you are not committing to any particular month.
