Instructors will develop and teach programs, workshops and classes offered at Workman Arts* or on units at CAMH (as part of the Art Cart program in collaboration with Gifts of Light) as well as in partnership with other arts organizations such as:
Workman Arts provides multi-disciplinary, professional art workshops for and by artists with lived experience of mental health and/or addictions issues. Workman Arts aims to support member artists through community support, access to free studio space, materials, equipment, free art training as well as professional development and presentation opportunities.
We are looking for artists that have developed skills, technical experience, or an artistic project across disciplines, including (but not limited to): Painting, Drawing, Printmaking, Sculpture, Textile Art, Photography, Media Arts, Filmmaking, Podcasting, Animation, Performance, Theatre, Dance, Poetry, Prose, Playwriting, Songwriting and/or Music Composition.
We prioritize hiring members or artists with lived experience. For more information about membership, click here.
Please keep in mind that programs are intended to provide participating artists with guidance and support in their own creative pursuits or the chance to contribute to a larger collaborative process (rather than be in service to an Instructor’s sole artistic vision or project). Also, please note that Workman Arts is a non-clinical arts organization and we will not prioritize applications that are situated explicitly within an art therapy and/or clinically-based framework.
