Deadline April 13
FRANKFORT, Ky. (Feb. 27, 2017) — The deadline for Kentucky artists to be considered for inclusion in the Kentucky Arts Council’s Teaching Artists Directory is April 13.
The Teaching Artists Directory is an online roster of Kentucky artists who have produced high-quality work and have the skills and competencies needed to collaborate with teachers to design and implement arts residencies in Kentucky schools.
“This directory is an important component of our Teaching Art Together program, as it provides classroom teachers with a well-vetted resource list of talented teaching arts specialists, selected for the Kentucky Arts Council’s directory by a panel of fellow artists and arts education professionals,” said Lydia Bailey Brown, arts council executive director. “These teaching artists are ready to be paired with teachers throughout the Commonwealth for short-term arts residencies, which increase school resources and provide for increased student learning and dramatically engaged students.”
For more information or to apply, visit the Teaching Artists Directory page of the arts council website, or contact Jean St. John, arts council education director, at [email protected] or 502-892-3124.
