Grants of up to $40,000 to Saskatchewan schools for arts programming. The purpose of this program is to enable K-12 schools to hire local artists. Funding is intended to enhance arts education and increase student engagement. Professionals may be from any artistic discipline.
Artists in Schools -- Residencies funding assists schools to host an artist in residence project by contracting a professional Saskatchewan artist working in any art form to collaboratively engage in arts activities that are linked to educational outcomes. Artists in Schools - Residencies support programs that engage students collaboratively in arts activities that are directly linked to cross-curricular and cross-cultural educational outcomes.
The Artists in Schools program offers Saskatchewan K-12 students enhanced arts-related activities through collaboration with professional artists. Residency programs are designed to engage students out of established partnerships where both partners (school and artist) plan and execute the program through inquiry-based processes.
The school hosts a six- to ten-month artist-in-residence program with one professional artist from any artistic discipline hired full-time (35-40 hours/week). The artist and school partners collectively determine a schedule, splitting this time 50/50 to accommodate the artist’s independent practice and the programming needs of the school.
Artists in Schools residencies are collaborative, inquiry-based learning programs. Participating artists take up residence in the school full-time, so they can contribute to its cultural life and engage students and teachers in arts activities that are linked to educational outcomes. Where possible, the school provides the artist with a suitable studio space that allows the artist and their art practice to be accessible.
