Due to the continued outbreak of COVID-19, TAP will be held virtually and restructured into two sessions, Fall (Oct-Dec) and Spring (Feb-March). Applications for the spring session will open in December 2020. Additionally, the focus of the sessions will be, “How can we deepen our teaching artist practice to meet the needs of this transformative moment?” This will include workshops on facilitating in a virtual environment, art as a vehicle for liberation, career development, and fieldwork focused on applicable classroom skills, building your portfolio, and administrative skills and experience.

Please see a detailed overview of the fall program here. The application deadline is February 1st with an early bird deadline of January 11th.

There will be two open houses on January 6th and January 25th to learn more about this opportunity.
