Individual Artists

Arts in Education Artist Roster

Deadline: May 1, 2015

Coordinator: Catherine O'Brian
(603) 271-0795

Teaching artists work as both artists and educators.  They are important resources for students, teachers and schools in New Hampshire.  They can bring unique real world knowledge and perspectives into the classroom and can play a crucial role in the process of arts learning and developing creative thinking.  Experienced and successful teaching artists know how to be effective partners in education.  Teaching artists can be included in:

  • Short and long-term school and after-school residencies where discipline-specific learning in the arts can occur in dance, theatre, media, visual arts, music, poetry, etc.
  • Arts experiences, including in-school performances, as well as field trips to studios, galleries, museums and performances.
  • The achievement of arts education standards with curriculum-based arts instruction in pre K - grade 12.
  • Arts integration throughout curriculum as a way of engaging all students with a variety of learning styles in the learning process.
  • Professional development in the arts for teachers, administrators, parents and community members.
  • Higher education and professional development for artists.
  • Lifelong learning in the arts through community arts events, classes and workshops.

The Council invites applications from professional artists in all disciplines who are experienced in their field/s and can make a strong personal commitment to working in an educational setting with students, educators, administrators and parents to apply to the Arts in Education (AIE) Roster. Interested artists should contact the Arts in Education Coordinator Catherine O’Brian to discuss their application prior to submitting it.
