The Maine Arts Commission is now accepting applications for the PK-12 Teaching Artists Roster. The online roster was established in the fall of 2014 and includes artists whose applications reflect their expertise and commitment to providing learning opportunities for students and/or teachers in the PK-12 education setting. Teaching Artists are professional artists who are dedicated to lifelong learning and arts education, have made it an integral part of their professional practice, and who have cultivated skills as educators in concert with their skills as artists.
