Are you interested in becoming an instructor at MISSA? In early fall the MISSA Board of Directors starts planning the workshop program for the following summer to be able to have the new classes posted to the website in January/February of the new year. Exact dates are unfortunately not guaranteed from year to year but typically fall between the last weekend in June to the first week in July.

MISSA 2019: June 22 – July 5 (Celebrating 35 years!)

Teaching contracts are offered on a per workshop basis and are not an assurance of year-to-year employment. Workshop proposals must be submitted each year. We prefer that instructors new to MISSA start with a two-day proposal. Instructors receive an honorarium and all meals and accommodation are covered. Economy travel and supply expenses are to be discussed with MISSA.

If you are interested in becoming an instructor at MISSA, please consider the following:

1. You will need to include a brief bio with teaching, education and reference details
2. Short course proposal (2-day or 5-day) Class size is limited to 12 students and classes run 9-4 each day.
3. Contact info and website details (Please note that a website or equivalent web presence is a must.)

Accepting proposals for 2019 is now closed. MISSA does however, accept proposals throughout the year. Please do not apply during our busiest season of May, June or July.

For future proposals, please apply using the form below:

We look forward to hearing from you for MISSA 2020 and beyond!

MISSA 2020 Workshop Proposal

Please provide a brief but concise proposal for a workshop you would like to teach at MISSA.
  • Please make the title as brief as possible, yet clear about what the workshop is about. This is the hook that will get people to read more about your workshop.
  • Describe what the students will be learning and what you plan to cover. Use description as much as possible as this is what will entice artists to attend your workshop.
  • Drop files here or
    Accepted file types: jpg, png, pdf.
    Max of 3 images in jpg, png or pdf each with a maximum file size of 500kb (please resize images to make smaller if the file size is too big)
  • Workshops are offered in 2-day and 5-day blocks divided into Weekend One, Week One, Weekend Two and Week Two. Sometimes an exception can be made for a 7-day workshop. Please note that for first time MISSA instructors, it is suggested to submit a 2-day proposal to start.
