AX is seeking proposals for the 2023 workshop season. Please submit your workshop proposal for consideration by December 31, 2022.

Call for workshop proposals

AX offers workshops in various disciplines, including visual arts, ceramics, fine crafts, and writing.

Workshop formats can be flexible. For example, workshops may be single half-day or full-day classes, after-school programs, week-long March Break (for youth) or summer workshops, or 4-6 consecutive weeks of 1 ½ hr – 3 hr sessions, as your workshop requires.

AX can work with you to help determine a suitable time and fee schedule, and once a proposal has been accepted, AX helps publicize the event. We also manage registration and fee collection from participants.

AX hosts approximately 20-25 workshops per year, and an independent, volunteer committee meets every few months to review proposals. If you wish your workshop to be considered in the next review, please submit your proposal by December 31, 2022.
