Teach at the FCA

Teach with the Federation of Canadian Artists


The FCA prides itself on an ability to provide varied and professional art instruction and education. You do not need to be a member to teach at the FCA, although many of the FCA signature status members (AFCA and SFCA artists) teach with us.


The following are examples of our current programming. Please be sure to quote the type of program you are interested in when completing your instructor application.


Mondays in the Gallery

9:30 am - 4:30 pm

The Federation Gallery is closed to the public on Mondays. Which makes it a great location for day-intensive workshops. Depending on your class, the gallery space will allow for 18 - 20 students for theory / table-top classes and up to 15 students for classes that require standing easels.


Weekend Workshops

10:00 am - 5:00 pm

The FCA attempts to provide better access to art education across BC by hosting workshops in various locations such as Port Coquitlam and Richmond, and  but we welcome suggestions for other venues. The workshops can be two or three days, between Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Weekend workshops give instructors more time to explore in-depth teaching, where students can work on pieces or techniques over a series of days. 


Please do not include resumes or biographies with your applications, Do  include 5 JPEGs or photographs relevant to your proposed class.


Applicants are welcome to suggest other dates, times and classes for consideration.
