Please review all of the class information on this page before you fill out the teacher application. The online application is at the end of this page.

All-day and half-day classes will be held Friday the 6th and Saturday the 7th. Only half-day classes will be held on Sunday the 8th.


All classes will be held outside. Canopies will be provided. NGS will retain $15.00 per student from your class fee. You will be provided one 8 ft table for every 5 students, a chair for each student, and one additional table for the teacher. Additional tables will be available for rent for $10.00 each--just specify what you need in the "List anything else you require for this class" section of the Application Form.


Water is available in the kitchen of the exhibit hall. If your class requires water, please bring a container large enough to accommodate your students' needs so you can fill prior to class and your students will not be required to go in and out of the exhibit hall during class.

If you require electricity, your class will be located near an outlet. You will need to bring your own extension cords, power strips, etc. You will need at least one heavy duty extension cord to reach from your closest outlet to your class area.
