Grants of up to $800 per week to Ohio preK-12 schools and universities and nonprofit organizations to host an artist to share arts learning experiences. A webinar will be held January 19, 2017. The program offers access to an accomplished professional artist to bridge cultural differences and develop fresh ways of learning.
The Artist in Residence Program provides one-year grants to place accomplished professional artists in a variety of educational and community settings to facilitate learning in, through, and about the arts. Many residencies are about two to four weeks in length, although applications for residencies lasting a full semester or full academic year are permissible. OAC funds are used to support artist fees.
Residency hosts select artists from a roster of professional artists. Artists and hosts collaboratively plan an in-depth art-making experience that engages participants of varying ages, cultures, experiences and ability levels within a mutually supportive and creative learning environment. A core group is selected to work with the artist every day during the residency, while peripheral groups meet with the artist less often. The artist also works with the host to design and hold a professional development workshop involving staff in a hands-on art making experience to deepen their understanding of the creative process and the artist's discipline. The artistic work of participants is shared with the community at the conclusion of the residency.
Funding can only be used to support artist fees.
