Want to earn some extra money?
Do a Workshop!

How would you like to earn some money? Would you like to share a particular skill you have in creating art? The Longmont Artist Guild is looking for art instructors to expand our workshop program. You provide the studio space (usually in your home) along with your "expertise" on a particular technique or project. LAG will get the word out for you so you can get lots of students. No commission or fees to LAG as long as you are a current member. You can charge $10 - $25 per person, depending on the length of the workshop and what you provide. You can always send out a supply list and the students bring their own. To offer a workshop, get ideas or advice, just email us at:
