fees and booking
This page describes the costs for Christine Porter to teach for you, your art group or your school. Contact Christine directly by phone or email to discuss your needs. She is happy to work in with whatever you have planned – including writing new work or adjusting previously taught modules.
travel: Christine is happy to travel anywhere in Australia (and indeed the world) to work with your artists. If she needs to drive more than an hour her fee will include an hourly rate for travel or a reimbursement of public transport costs such as air fare. Lismore is in north-east New South Wales: 2.5 hours south of Brisbane, 2 hours east of Tenterfield, 1.5 hour flight from Sydney. If Christine is seeing several clients or groups in an area, the travel expenses will be shared between those groups, or reduced.
materials: Depending on the aim of the learning experiences provided, participants may need to purchase suitable art materials supplied by the tutor at cost. If your town has an art shop, they will be given first option to supply class sets of materials. A detailed materials list will be sent to the group in good time for the artists to prepare, if that is their wont. The tutor will always have enough materials for everyone. Those new to the medium, disorganised or too busy will be catered for and are welcome.
venue: any hall, classroom or shed is a suitable venue, depending on the type of workshop. More details are given in the notes at the end of each workshop description however everything will be discussed at the time of booking the workshop.
meals: the tutor will be responsible for her own meals
the day: the length of the teaching day can be as long as from 8:30 till 6 , however most groups work from 9 until 5 ish. A lunch break will be taken. Whilst working in schools Christine is happy to take a shorter lunch break so that students can have access during their lunchtime. Some workshops include follow-up or pre-workshop consultation.
your contact person: it is in the committee’s best interest to allocate someone to be there each day to be the person on the ground – to secure the premises and take tuition fees etc. Christine will supply a tax invoice on the morning of the last day.
flexibility: there is a certain amount of flexibility regarding just about all of these points. We are open to suggestions so if you have an idea , or can’t see exactly what you want here.
discounts: a discount will be considered if more than one workshop or activity is organised whilst Christine is in your town. Travel is not charged at full rate if she has other business there. On very rare occasions Christine may consider a discount on the tuition fee for a single event. Contact her to see if this is one of those times.
