MISSA has a reputation of offering transformational learning experiences through instruction by a local, national and international faculty of practicing artists. Specialized courses are designed for professional artists, teachers and serious adult students. Participants have options to stay on or off campus, see Accommodation page for more details. Course fees include daytime meals (lunch and two snacks) and supply fees are unique to each course. Breakfast and dinner are included in the accommodation cost. Courses run 9 am – 4 pm each day. You can take one course or back to back courses. Plan your summer and enjoy the many offerings at MISSA!
The following on-line workshops are part of a developing educational partnership connecting geographically from the west coast to the east coast and Canadian artists to American artists. MISSA is proud to partner with WOOTEN CLAYWORKS based in New Jersey, USA, for these on-going educational opportunities. Stay tuned for more!

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.
MISSA is looking forward to hosting an in-person Summer Program in 2022 (July 29 – August 12)
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 8-10 students* (adjusted for COVID protocols) 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.)
Applications for teaching in-person workshops are now being accepted!
Please note that although we accept proposals throughout the year, our busiest times are December/January and June/July. It is preferable to submit your proposal outside of those times.
