Collaborating with a teaching artist is an excellent way to celebrate creativity in your school. Because the arts engage students of all learning styles, an arts integrated unit or performance can help accomplish learning objectives in many subjects. Vermont Arts Council's Teaching Artist Roster is a listing of juried artists who excel in working with students and teachers to help make learning in and through the arts possible.
Roster artists have been evaluated and designated as both high-quality practicing artists and experienced teachers in their respective artistic disciplines. These artists have been called upon to work in a variety of traditional and non-traditional settings. Teaching artists may be selected for projects through the Council's Artists in Schools Grants and are also a resource for projects independent of Council programs.
Although each listing includes a brief description of the teaching artist(s) and their work, the best way to learn more about their programs and offerings is to contact them directly. We also encourage you to contact references provided by the teaching artists.
Important Note: The Vermont Arts Council does not conduct criminal background checks as a part of its jury process. Organizations and schools wishing to hire artists from the Teaching Arts Roster should follow their own policies and conduct their own required procedures just as they would in any hiring decision.
