We are SO excited that you're interested in being an art instructor at our Crafts & Cats events! 

This & That with Cats is all about helping local artists grow and finding homeless cats a home. We are aiming to open a kitty lounge where we can house rescue cats and invite local artists to teach their talent. This event is just one step towards that!

Everything you need to know

One of the goals of Crafts & Cats to give people a feel for what This & That with Cats will be like. We want guests to be surrounded by local art and feel creativity fill the air. 

At This & That with Cats we plan on having local artists utilize the lounge to teach their art. Although the kitties cannot be free-roaming at Tea & Poets as they would be at This & That with Cats, they will still be at this event, ready for cuddles and ready to be adopted!

Another goal is to give local artists a chance to teach their art. We want to give artists the opportunity to share their passion with others, and to also help them gain exposure to their art.

Our last goal for Crafts & Cats is to raise funds to help us open our doors. The flat rate from the art class instructor, as well as any additional donations people may make at the event, go 100% toward opening our doors.

Guest Admission:

Venue: Tea & Poets is open to the public.

Kitty Play Time: If you would like to play and hang out with the cats, we will be accepting a monetary donation of any amount. We will also accept proof of a class sign up or a merchandise purchase in exchange for, at minimum, 15 minutes of play time! This ensures that everyone gets a chance to play with the fur babies. 

Art Class: If you would like to participate in a class, you must RSVP through Eventbrite. If the class is not full, walk-ins are welcome.

Price Structure:

The artist may choose their own class price. We give the artist the option to choose from a flat rate fee or a percentage. 

Flat rate fee: The artist pays a certain rate before the classes begin, and then the artist receives all of the funds from the class participants.

The payment should be made through PayPal to: thisandthatwithcats@gmail.com

Choosing the flat rate fee will also determine your class price.

IE: $105 Flat rate - $25 Class Price,  $85 Flat rate - $20 Class Price, $65 Flat rate - $15 Class Price

Percentage: The artist receives a certain percentage of the funds from the class participants. The prices are discussed before.

A deposit of $50 is due two weeks before your chosen event,

The remaining flat rate fee is due one week before your chosen event.

The funds you make through the art class will be distributed after the event.
