Calling all Teaching Artists for Classes & Events

Lil Chameleon:  The stylish child’s resale boutique, a cool café & even cooler classes.  Buy.  Sell.  Trade.  Relax.  Play.

Lil Chameleon is looking for skilled, charismatic, reliable teaching artists and instructors with various backgrounds in art, craft, music, fashion, puppetry, family & community, parenting, mothering and wellness to work with us. We are a new business opening this Fall in Lower Westchester (location to be announced in a few weeks) offering a variety of classes and events for ages 2-12+, mothers and families. All classes will be held in our ground floor location.  Additional office space in our separate upstairs area could also be available to rent.

The ideal teaching artists are passionate about their work and have previous experience teaching kids and/or families.  Maybe you already have a following! 

Lil Chameleon is currently building the programming and open to hosting a variety of art and music classes and events although we are seeking to stay within these general themes: children, families, community, the earth, recycling & upcycling, fashion and style, jewelry & accessories, current children’s trends, home decorating, dolls, toys, and animals. Put your ideas on paper and let’s discuss.  

Looking especially for artists located in the Westchester area who are available to teach in our location during the weekday and possibly Saturdays if arranged.

Payment is made directly to the Teaching Artist as a Sole Proprietor or company at a mutually negotiated rate. Our location is centrally located, directly across the street from a Metro North station, an average 35 min trip from NYC’s Grand Central, and easily accessible via car. 

Please email cover letter with a brief summary/proposal of the type of class you’d like to run, resume in a PDF, and include a website or portfolio link if available.  cc@lilchameleon.com

We look forward to hearing from you!
