The CMAB Teaching Artist Grant is available to artists who complete the CMAB Teaching Artist Roster Program and are listed on the CMAB Teaching Artist Roster. The goal of the program is to support local artists in sharing their knowledge, skills and process with learners throughout the region by increasing the opportunities for artist residences.

Funding for the TAG program is provided by the McKnight Foundation.
