*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 to a variety of audiences.
If you prefer, you may apply online at the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts website, where you will be asked to register as a new user. You will not have to complete this paper application, but will still be responsible for reading this Artist Application Information Sheet and following directions provided with the online application. Note that the online information about work samples is limited, so we strongly encourage you to send in work samples through the mail as described on the this Artist Application Information Sheet.
