Opportunity for USA artists in the New York Tri-State area to be included in a list of resident teaching artists administered by the Funding Source. The purpose of the program is to provide local artists with the opportunity to be selected for a teaching artist residency in schools or community agencies.
ArtsWestchester administers a Teaching Artist Roster. It is an online resource for schools and community agencies who want to work in collaboration with an artist and conduct an artist residency.
An artist residency is a highly structured, multi-session workshop that fosters learning in and through the arts. Generally, workshops are sequential, each session building upon the previous ones. Teaching Artists develop and implement residencies in collaboration with educators or, in the case of human service and community agencies, with the site staff. In schools, residencies serve as an instructional tool, helping students to master core curricula content in other subjects as well as addressing the Common Core Standards in the Arts. In day-care centers, after-school programs, mental health facilities, shelters and other community settings, residencies foster cognitive, developmental, social and individual skills and abilities basic to success in school, in life, and in the workforce.
If selected by a school and/or community agency, artists will have the opportunity to sharpen their teaching skills by conducting educational art programs and supplement their income while continuing their professional growth.
