Teaching At Washington College Academy

Washington College Academy's instructors include both studio artists and professional educators. We are looking for artists doing interesting work who are also excellent teachers with these qualities: a willingness to be generous with information, strong technical skills, good interpersonal skills, and an ability to teach conceptual information. We encourage innovative classes, classes that advance contemporary expressions in various media as well as classes that incorporate or emphasize historic information and processes.  


Most of our classes are open to students at all skill levels (including beginners) and we attract students of all ages, with a minimum age of 18. However, we do have some junior classes scheduled throughout the year.  

WCA is currently working on the 2023-24 Calendar. WCA’s calendar starts in full in February with most classes ending in November. Right now, the calendar dates are open. Please consider us when you are planning your calendar of events for the 2023-24 year.  We will start publishing and advertising in February. Please submit classes early for more date selection.


Once we receive your proposal, we will contact you if we need more information or have any questions.  

Thank you for your interest in teaching at Washington College Academy. We are always interested in learning about artists who can bring new perspectives to our programs.

If you would like to make an appointment to set up your dates and times please call the office at 423-257-5151. It’s helpful if instructors have some familiarity with the school.  If you would like to tour the campus, please give us a call.
