New York State Alliance for Arts Education - 2007

Funded in March, 2007: $50000 for 1 years
The New York State Alliance for Arts Education in collaboration with the Association of Teaching Artists and in consultation with the Arts In Education Program of the New York State Council on the Arts will implement a training program, entitled Teaching Artist 101.  This program is for new, mostly unaffiliated performing artists in need of training to maneuver the complexities of schools and the challenges they will meet in their new role as teaching artists.  Teaching Artist 101 will provide a sequential, consistent, and cohesive training that enables performing artists to develop a philosophy and method of work based upon sound educational theory and high artistic standards reflecting New York State's Learning Standards in the Arts and Academic subjects as well as the New York City Department of Education Blueprint for the Arts.
