The Teaching Artist Institute (TAI) is looking for 25 artists interested in bringing their art form to classrooms around Maryland as paid teaching artists. Applications, findable here, are open until September 25, and an info session will be held at the Young Audiences' office on September 10 at 5:30 (RSVP here).
TAI is a comprehensive professional development experience that is open to any artist (not just those who want to work with YA beyond the program.) Beginning in November 2019, this TAI seminar empowers artists to partner with teachers, transforming learning environments and breathing joy and creativity into classrooms of all curricula. Artists come away from this program with a highly marketable fine arts residency to implement in classrooms around Maryland.
TAI’s professional development programs provide artists with:
- Training in educational trends and best practices, curriculum standards, and classroom management strategies;
- Coaching from an exemplary faculty of master teaching artists;
- Opportunities to network and collaborate with other artists and teachers.
