TEACHING ARTIST ROSTER


Teaching Artists listed on the roster have completed a seven-session training in preparation for working in a residency program to support educators by making connections between their art form and the Minnesota State Academic standards in the arts, integrating the arts with concepts in other subject areas, professional development for educators, and working with specific student populations.

Once you have selected an artist, contact them to discuss options for your residency. Based on your discussion, the artist will submit a proposal to the CMAB to receive up to $2000 in funding for a residency.

*CMAB does not conduct background checks for the Teaching Artist Program. Schools and institutions should use their normal screening process. Artists operate as independent contractors.
