If you would like to teach at PCOC, please complete one of the forms below. The success of PCOC depends upon the contributions of volunteers like you, so please sign up to teach! If you teach at PCOC, you may be eligible for Priority Ticketing.

On Saturday and Sunday the classes feature specific models, and the sessions can be 45 minutes (1 period), 1 hour and 45 minutes (2 periods) or 2 hours and 45 minutes (3 periods). Please specify the level of the model(s) being taught, i.e., Simple, Low Intermediate, Intermediate, High Intermediate, Complex, Super Complex.

The other option is to schedule a seminar, which is a session not specifically related to constructing an origami model. Past seminars have included subjects such as gift wrapping, different types of paper, decorating paper and understanding crease patterns. Please specify the length of the seminar, any special accommodations needed (like a projector or a large table area) and/or any material fees. Contact us for further information. In addition we recommend that you attend our Teaching Tips class on Friday at 9 pm.

If you have any questions or qualms, please write to us at pcoc-teaching [at] origamiusa.org with your question.

Class Previews

When you register to teach a class, a description of your class will immediately appear on our new class preview web pages. Within the teaching registration form you will have the option to upload a photo of your model, which will be shown on the class preview web page. Uploading a photograph is optional. Although you will not have a chance to add a photo once you have completed this form, please do not delay telling us what you want to teach and fill out the form if you don't have a photo—people will still want to see the class description.

Once your teaching form is entered, the following fields will be shown on the class preview web page: Teacher Name, Model Name, Description, Level, and Image (the photo, if you uploaded one).
