Arts Wayland Program Guidelines and Requirements

Arts Wayland invites art instructors to propose a workshop or class for adults to be held in our studio. The teacher will design and manage the activity and enrollment with assistance from Arts Wayland.  Arts Wayland Foundation, Inc. is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization. The following are the details of our program requirements.

ABOUT THE STUDIO - The studio can fit 8-10 participants for a workshop or class. We encourage you to visit before you plan a class. You will be responsible to leave the studio in the condition that you found it. No solvents or paint can be put in the sink. Students should bring a container for waste from oil and acrylic painting. They should wrap brushes and take palettes home for cleaning. Table easels are available. About 5 standing easels are available. If more are needed, we can discuss.


If your program proposal is accepted, Arts Wayland will post on our website and send out a notice to our mailing list. It is the teachers responsibility to do PR to the press and we provide instruction on how to do this. We also encourage you to promote to your own mailing list.

You may have examples of your work, show cards, and business cards to pass out. But, in all your communications you must specify that this is an ‘Arts Wayland’ activity taking place at the Arts Wayland studio. You will be covered by our liability insurance while you are teaching in the studio.

We will direct students to contact you directly for enrollment. They will also pay you directly. You must keep track of all registrants and contact them in case of cancellation of the class (if weather is bad, or if minimum enrollment is not reached). You may take payment on your own website indicating it is an Arts Wayland activity on the payments page.

We require a completed student roster, including name, phone, and email, sent to us one week before the class begins. We will use this to prepare a check in sheet on the first day.

Please have policies for cancellations and refunds that you give to students prior to class. If your activity does not have at least 4 enrolled by one week ahead we recommend that you contact students to cancel and give refunds.

We recommend at least a month and a half lead time to get the word out. More time is better.


You will pay Arts Wayland 20% of total receipts within 5 days of the program end date. Make check out to “Arts Wayland Foundation” and send to P.O. Box 272, Wayland, MA 01778
