Art Insight – A partnership with Workman Arts and Lakeshore Arts invites instructors to propose accessible and inclusive online or hybrid courses for our 2022 training program. Instructors will develop and teach workshops and classes for participants living in South Etobicoke. Each course will be provided with a Workman Arts peer support person, who will support participants with anything that may come up for them during the class. The peer support person is not there to assist the instructor with instructing.

Art Insight – A partnership with Workman Arts and Lakeshore Arts is specifically looking to add programming in South Etobicoke. This includes the area between Etobicoke Creek to the West, and the Humber River to the East, The Queensway to the North, and the lakeshore to the south. Courses will begin in January 2022 and February 2022 running 5 weeks in length online


Instructors will be paid a total of $350 per class under 4 hours, plus a one-time prep fee of $250 (a total of $2000 for one 5-week course.) Workman Arts will cover the cost of materials and support the delivery or pick up of materials to participants.

What we are looking for: 

We are looking for artists who live in Etobicoke who 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 artists with lived experience of mental illness and/or addiction.

Please keep in mind that programs are intended to provide participants with guidance and support in their own creative pursuits or the chance to contribute to a larger collaborative process (rather than be in service to an Instructor’s sole artistic vision or project). Also, please note that Workman Arts is a non-clinical arts organization and we will not prioritize applications that are situated explicitly within art therapy and/or clinically-based framework.

Once we have received your application it will be reviewed and we will contact you with the next steps if your application is selected. All applications will be reviewed.

The deadline to apply is November 1, 2021. Click here to apply!
