      Hey Julian,
      According to the TAP website, “Yes, you can earn an income teaching art at Tacoma Art Place—just keep the class affordable. Instructors at Tacoma Art Place are independent contractors and/or volunteers. You can teach once a month or once a year. It is up to you.” You can contact TAP directly at Instruct@TacomaArtPlace.org or http://tacomaartplace.org/. Good luck!
