I need someone for the summer/fall in my studio to teach beg/adv wheel and hand building. Includes furnished apartment attached to the studio, clay, firing, ect. Also a share of the tuitions. Art events, sales, solo show. Have a great time while focusing on your art. Did I mention we are on the Oregon coast?
