The Kentucky Arts Council’s Teaching Art Together grant allows teachers to work with professional artists listed in the arts council’s Teaching Artists Directory to design and implement innovative five- to 20-day residencies.

Artists selected for the Teaching Artists Directory work in a wide variety of disciplines, including dance, folk arts, literary arts, media/video, music, storytelling, theater and visual arts.

Any teacher or group of teachers in a public or private school that supports any grades, preschool to 12, may apply. The grant application deadline is April 1. The Teaching Art Together grant guidelines and application can be found at the arts council website. For more information about applying, contact Chris Cathers, program branch manager, or (888) 833-2787, ext. 488.
