Your answer
Are you an exhibiting artist at the Dairy Barn, past present, or future? If so, what exhibition have/are/will you be featured in?
EX: I was an exhibiting artist in Quilt National 2015, or I will be featured in Ohio +5 2018. If you have not exhibited or been accepted into a Dairy Barn show, just write "No". You are still eligible for the fellowship and visiting artist program.
Your answer
Has your work been exhibited in other places? Where and when?
Your answer
Are you interested in
What is your class or workshops title/title suggestion?
Your answer
Have you ever taught this class or workshop before? If so, when and where?
Your answer
Please describe your workshop. What will the participants do?
Note: Workshops require the passing of a skill set from artist to participant. Generally, we encourage workshops that result with the participants taking home a finished product.
Your answer
How long do you think the class series/workshop will take?
A class series can be once a week for several weeks, or once a month for a year. A workshop can be just a couple hours, or could be an all day event with breaks for meals. It depends on what you have in mind. Ex: "My class would be once a week for 2 hours, for 6 weeks". Or, "My workshop would be best as a 4 hour Saturday workshop".
Your answer
When would you like to begin or run your class or workshop?
What dates, days and times are best for you if this is a one time workshop, or, what start date for a class series.
Your answer
What materials will you need for each participant for this workshop.
Generally, the Dairy Barn is responsible for acquiring materials for classes and workshops. However there are times when the teaching artist supplies certain elements. If you would be supplying materials, please let us know what the reimbursement per person to you for materials would be. This amount would include any actual cost to you, as well as compensation for your time if you would need to prepare the materials in advance. For example: "For my workshop I would supply each participant with a 2 foot by 2 foot pre-sanded and primed board at $10.00 per board". This would mean that the instructor compensation rate needs to include this cost. The Dairy Barn regularly orders what would be considered typical art making materials. If your workshop requires materials that are specialized, please include a suggestion of where to find them.
Your answer
Tell us about yourself...
We like to include an artist biography on our classes and workshops webpages. This helps prospective participants know a little about the artist and it helps us promote the artist. Please write out a brief biography. This can be short and just about your work, or have a personal touch. What do you want participants to know about you as an artist, or as an instructor. Also, you may include any online content about your work such as you website. We will put a link to the class or workshop webpage.
Your answer
Compensation
The Dairy Barn Arts Center has a mission to support artists, and we believe strongly in paying artists fairly to compensate them for their time and for sharing the skills and knowledge they have acquired. Each class series or workshop is unique and compensation rates will be negotiated between the education director and artist. Typically, for local artist instructors, The Dairy Barn compensates at a rate of $20.00 per in-class hour, plus an hour of planning for each session. For example, if an artist teaches a one-time 3 hour workshop, the compensation is $80.00. Or, if an artist teaches a 6 week class, with 2 hour, once-weekly sessions, the compensation would be $60.00 per week. Artist providing their own materials are entitled to additional reimbursement for those costs. Additionally, if an artist is supplying tools, they will be compensated for usage/wear and tear. For traveling/out of area artists, an additional travel stipend may be appropriate. From the options below, select the track you would like to take regarding compensation for your time and skill sharing.
Additional information we should know
Is there anything else we should know to help us determine if your class or workshop is a good fit for the Barn and what the approximate costs would be. The Education Director will contact you and let you know if we want to move forward with your class or workshop. Once you have submitted this form, we advise you to send an email to the Education Director lyn@dairybarn.org to let her know you have submitted a proposal and that you are awaiting a response.
