MCCLA is committed to offering local artists & artisans the opportunity to teach classes at the Center in various artistic disciplines. Currently, MCCLA offers approximately 40 classes for all ages in dance, music, arts & crafts, theater & visual arts, among others.
Priority is given to classes that further MCCLA’s mission to promote, preserve and develop the Latino Arts, and to make arts accessible to the community it serves. For this reason, instructors are required to be bilingual (English/Spanish). A complete application must be submitted by the required dead line.
Instructors must teach at least one of two semesters during the year. The 2 semesters go from January to June and from July to December. Applications are accepted twice a year: in May (for the Jan-Jun semester), and in November (for the Jul-Dec semester). Once application is approved, MCCLA and the instructor (independent contractor) enter into a teaching agreement. Instructor obtains 60% of the total of tickets sold to their class. Payments are made every two weeks.
If instructor begins in January, he/she has the option, at MCCLA’s discretion, to continue teaching until December of the same year in November. However, all MCCLA instructors must submit a new application.
Instructors are responsible for promoting their classes, attending all scheduled classes punctually, having a qualified substitute to teach in their absence, and keeping a minimum of 8-10 students per class throughout the semester, MCCLA is not responsible for recruiting students. Instructors must make sure to collect all tickets from students, total amount of tickets will be the amount you will be paid for, not for the total tickets sold, all assistants and guest must sign in. Consideration is given to all of the above upon contract renewal.
