Carnegie Hall is now accepting teaching proposals for the 22nd annual Kids’ College. Artists in and around the Greenbrier Valley who enjoy teaching are invited to share their passion and expertise with children in Kindergarten through 7th grade during the upcoming term. Kids’ College, a two-week summer day camp, provides children with a unique opportunity to expand their learning, through art and science, in a safe and nurturing environment. Teachers are also paid for sharing their time and talent with children at Kids’ College. Next year, Kids’ College takes places July 7-11 and July 14-18, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Two sessions are offered each day during the two-week Kids’ College semester. Students pick a curriculum of three, one-hour morning classes or two 80-minute classes in the afternoon.

Also, instructors are being sought for the Spring 2014 Class & Workshop Series. Any teaching artist or person with a special talent who is interested in teaching a class (multiple meetings) or workshop (one-day event) on any art-related subject are invited to submit a proposal. Classes are taught at Carnegie Hall during the days, evenings, or on Saturdays during the months of February, March, April and May. Carnegie Hall has facilities for teaching music, dance, weaving, clay, art and more. Pay is based on the number of students who enroll in your class.

Proposal forms are available on our website, or at our office, located at 105 Church Street in Lewisburg. The deadline for proposals is Friday, Nov. 22. New ideas for classes, as well as proposals for classes that have been popular in the past are accepted. Anyone interested in teaching at Kids’ College must also submit a proposal, along with a very short biographical statement.

Proposals can be emailed to, faxed to 304-645-5228 or mailed to Carnegie Hall, 105 Church Street, Lewisburg, WV 24901. Contact Leah Trent, education director at Carnegie Hall, for more information at 304-645-7917, or
