Professionally active individual artists, artist ensembles, or companies (i.e., dance or theater companies/troupes) may apply for inclusion in the Pennsylvania Arts-in-Education/ArtsPath Directory of Artists in Education. Preference is given to Pennsylvania residents, although outstanding artists from other states will be considered.
Artists and companies or ensembles that intend to work in multiple disciplines must demonstrate their qualifications and submit a full application to work in each of those disciplines. Artists and companies selected will be placed on a statewide directory for three years, at which time they will need to reapply through a separate application process.
Artists need not be experienced classroom teachers. However, they should be individuals or groups that have a passion for their discipline and are able to communicate their artistic vision and processes to a variety of audiences.
The application deadline each year is March 1 for artists who, if selected, will be placed on the state diretory beginning September 1 of that year. To receive information on submitting an application, please call us at 724-357-4565 or e-mail Jeff Wacker at firstname.lastname@example.org.
