instructor inquiries

Are you interested in teaching a workshop in beautiful Northern Colorado? Well, good, because we’d love to have you here! Below is a list of resources that should help you. In addition, here’s a flyer you can download that highlights responsibilities and benefits of participating in this program: abc-workshops-invite

The most important things for you to know are these:

  1. We aren’t in this to make money. We’re just a bunch of artist who really love making things and we miss the workshops that Christine Webb of The Artists’ Nook used to organize. Therefore, we’ll do everything we can to make this a profitable trip for you, but we can’t pay for your travel and lodging.
  2. We are a LOT of fun to teach! Just ask Kelly Kilmer and Leighanna Light.


If you’re driving, we’re accessible from I-25, which runs north/south through Colorado. If you’re flying, you want to book your tickets to Denver (DIA) where we’ll either pick you up or you can have a Super Shuttle pick you up and bring you to wherever you’re staying.


In all honesty, it was (and is) one of my most favorite places to teach. I am ALWAYS excited about teaching in Fort Collins and I am forever grateful to you and Lynn for doing this. CO peeps are among my most favorite! The environment and people are so welcoming and inspirational. It always fills my heart to visit. I always leave a little piece of my heart behind when it’s time to go.

–Kelly Kilmer

  • 2. What is your cancellation policy?

    If the class is canceled due to low signups, instructor illness/emergency, act of God, etc., you will be issued a refund (minus PayPal fees).

    If you cancel before the signup deadline, you will be issued a full refund.

    If you cancel after the signup deadline, you need to find a replacement/sell your seat in the workshop.

  • 3. Are you looking for a multi-day class or several shorter classes?

    We find that it is nice to have several class lengths. That way those who can't spare a whole weekend or only have room in the budget for one workshop can participate alongside those who like to make a weekend out of it.

    This is a brand-new venture, so it's hard to say. We do have room for up to 16 students and can bring in more tables and chairs if needed.

  • 6. What do you normally charge each student per day?

    Student fees are based on what the instructor wants to receive per student. A marketing fee is tacked onto the instructor fee in order to have dollars available for room rental and marketing.

  • 8. Can I bring supplies/books to sell?

    If an instructor wishes to sell artwork, books, or supplies on workshop days, that's great! All sales will be managed by the instructor and we do not collect any percentage of those sales.
