The Teaching Artist Project
The Teaching Artist Project brings teaching artists into elementary classrooms to deliver high-quality, sequential, standards-based arts lessons. Each kindergarten, first, and second grade classroom will receive nine lessons with a dance teaching artist, nine lessons with a theatre teaching artist, and nine lessons with a visual art teaching artist.
