Pennsylvania Council on the Arts (PCA)
Grants to Pennsylvania nonprofit organizations, schools, government agencies, and institutions of higher education to support artist residencies. Funding is intended to support in-depth, long-term collaborations between professional teaching artists, students, teachers, and others through workshops and classes sponsored by schools, nonprofits, units of government, and other institutions. Each project is designed and developed by the teaching artist, the project director, and the sponsor organization.
Residencies are substantial periods of time in which an artist (or artists) works intensively with small groups of learners on one or more long-term projects. During this time, learners exercise creative control over their work. The artist’s role in such work is that of mentor and facilitator, leading students through guided self-discovery, and of technical advisor on important artistic concepts and skills.
Residencies are developed collaboratively between the artist and the host organization. Planning is conducted well before the beginning of the residency, allowing ample time for necessary arrangements to be made by both the artist and residency host.
AIE Partners recruit, select, train, place, and evaluate professional-quality teaching artists for residencies in school and community settings. Partners provide professional development opportunities in arts in education for artists, community organizations, and schools in the counties they serve. The partnership currently serves all 67 counties in Pennsylvania.
