TEACHING ARTIST ROSTER


Find an artist and 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 $2,000 in funding to conduct the residency. 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.

*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.
