VSA arts Invites Applications From Teaching Artists With Disabilities for Professional Development Fellowship Program

Deadline: April 23, 2010

VSA arts is seeking applications from artist-educators for the Teaching Artist Fellowship, a program to identify, engage, and support outstanding teaching artists with disabilities in the visual and performing arts.

Benefits to Teaching Artist Fellows include a professional development retreat in Washington, D.C., designed especially for teaching artists; subscriptions/memberships within the teaching artist network (i.e., Teaching Artist Journal, Art Education, Teaching Theatre); networking and teaching opportunities in Washington, D.C., and other areas (stipend and travel costs included); and enrollment in VSA Community of Practice, a professional development Web site. Fellows will also serve as facilitators for VSA education programs and will be profiled in VSA publications.

The program is open to artists with disabilities who have had experience working in pre-K-12 classrooms within the past three years. Applicants should demonstrate artistic achievement in visual or performing arts. (Note: This program is designed specifically for teaching artists. Classroom instructors are not eligible for the fellowship.)

See the VSA arts Web site for complete program information.
