Collaborating with a professional artist in a classroom engages students, fosters creativity, and improves student learning. Artists on the Council’s Teaching Artist Roster are professionals with extensive experience in education. Their school residencies can be funded through the VAC’s Artists in Schools Program—a program designed to provide arts experiences for students and professional development for teachers of all disciplines who are interested in teaching through the arts.
See the current Vermont Arts Council Teaching Artist Roster here.
The Integrated Arts Academy (IAA), in partnership with VSA Vermont, The Flynn Center for the Performing Arts, Burlington City Arts, and the Vermont Arts Council is offering a semester long professional development opportunity for teaching artists to learn more about arts integration, universal design, and classroom collaboration. Teaching artists from across the state are encouraged to apply.
Program participants who complete the course will receive 3 graduate level credits through Saint Michael’s College and a stipend to cover tuition costs. Program participants who complete the course will also be automatically added to the Vermont Arts Council's Teaching Artist Roster. For an application or more information about the course, including distance learning options, please contact Arts Education Program Manager, Ben Doyle by email to email@example.com or by calling 802-828-3778. Deadline to apply is 4:00 p.m. July 14, 2014.
