Community Arts Partner Roster
The Office of Arts & Culture, in collaboration with Seattle Public Schools, will create and maintain an Arts Partner Roster of teaching artists and community arts and culture organizations for the Creative Advantage. The roster will be a resource for schools seeking partners to meet their education and community goals.
Through the Creative Advantage, there are three primary ways in which teaching artists and arts and cultural organizations will support SPS schools:
CULTURAL ARTS RESIDENCIES FOR STUDENTS
Arts residencies during the school day that promote cultural awareness. These programs can take place in core art classes, physical education, world languages, technology, and library programs, and can be offered to any grade level.
INTEGRATED ARTS RESIDENCIES FOR STUDENTS
Arts residencies during the school day that deepen learning in both the arts and other subject areas (e.g. language arts, science or social studies).
PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT FOR K-5 TEACHERS
Training for elementary teachers on arts integrated instruction that connects content and skills from the arts and other subject areas.
Can I apply to provide student arts residencies and teacher professional development?
YES. An applicant can apply to provide both arts residencies AND professional development opportunities for teachers, and will have the option to indicate on the application.
