Teach at PTSA!

Thank for for your interest in teaching at Port Townsend School of the Arts (PTSA). PTSA's classes and workshops are taught by a diverse and skilled group of approximately 50+ instructors annually. We invite innovative and effective class and workshop proposals according to the schedule below. Proposals are evaluated by a committee consisting of staff and board members. We seek to create a schedule that is balanced by medium, content, level, timing and prospective audience.

To new or current PTSA instructor

  • If the class or workshop has been offered successfully in the past (minimum enrollment met or exceeded), a new proposal is not necessary. E-mail the Program Manager at info@ptarts.org on or before the proposal deadline and we will work together on scheduling. Approved classes and workshops will be scheduled on a first-proposed basis.
  • If a class has been offered in the past and cancelled due to low or no enrollment (based on most recent offering), a new proposal is encouraged, but not required. The Program Committee will expect a rationale for offering it again. For example, you have a group of participants ready to sign up; you have established stronger and more effective avenues for marketing and promoting your class; you have restructured the class. E-mail the Program Manager at info@ptarts.org on or before the proposal deadline and the class/workshop will be included in the evaluation cycle. Approved classes and workshops will be scheduled on a first-proposed basis.
  • If you are a current or past instructor proposing a new class, please use online form below. Approved classes and workshops will be scheduled on a first-proposed basis.
