Vision Gallery is looking for proposals for our 2021 – 22 Vision Kids season. You are invited to submit one or more proposals for individual, one-session classes you would like to teach.

Vision Kids has been central to Vision Gallery’s programming since 1997. These visual arts classes for kids age 6 to 16 are free to anyone who would like to participate, providing important access to arts education that our community’s youth may not be getting in school. We believe that all kids deserve an outlet to be creative.

Program Details
● The deadline to submit a proposal is Sunday, May 16.
● Classes are 2 hours each, and are held in two separate sessions on Saturdays (10am – 12pm and 1pm – 3pm) with an hour break in between. Instructors will teach the same class twice on the same day.
● Class projects must be completed in the 2-hour session.
● Vision Gallery will provide all supplies
● Teaching artists are paid a stipend of $100/teaching hour. Payment is made the week following completion of the class, up to a total of $400.
● Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are planning for our Fall 2021 classes to happen via Zoom. We will provide all necessary equipment to make this possible for instructors. We are hoping to be able to host our Spring 2022 classes in person, and it may be possible to shift from virtual to in-person classes sooner. We will be making this decision based on advice from leading health professionals and experts in our field, and will work with instructors on a case-by-case basis.
● Currently we are programming for July 2021 – June 2022.
