Individual Artists

Arts Education Artist Roster

Deadline: Rolling

Contact: Allison Hawkins

Teaching artists on the Arts Education Roster work as both professional artists and experienced educators. They bring deep content knowledge and real world perspectives to facilitate hands-on project based learning. Teaching Artists supplement school curricular offerings and enrich learning opportunities in our communities, diversifying the artistic disciplines and forms that students experience. These professionals share their expertise to facilitate creative and meaningful engagement in the arts.

Teaching Artists Can Be Included In:

  1. School and community based residencies in dance, theatre, media, visual arts, music, poetry, etc.
  2. The achievement of arts education standards and competencies in pre K - grade 12.
  3. Arts integration: a strategy for using the arts to reach curricular goals in other subject areas and the arts.
  4. STEAM education: integrating and reaching competencies in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics.
  5. Engaging students of multiple learning styles and enhancing school and community approaches to Universal Design for Learning (UDL).
  6. Professional development in the arts for educators of all subject areas and community members.
  7. Facilitating arts experiences that further dialogue, gather input, and create new modes of traditional community development and planning processes.
  8. Lifelong learning and creative aging through the arts at community arts events, classes and workshops.

The Arts 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 Education Roster.
