2011-2012 Arizona Teaching Artist Roster

The Arizona Commission on the Arts is pleased to introduce the 2011-2012 Arizona Teaching Artist Roster, an online, juried directory of professional artists with expertise in engaging schools and communities in meaningful arts learning experiences.

The Teaching Artist Roster promotes quality Arizona artists with the skills and sensibilities of educators, ready to meet the challenges of working in 21st century learning environments. Artists are able to lead collaborations with communities and schools, to work with a variety of populations through lectures, demonstrations, workshops, residencies, performances, readings and more.

Explore the online directory which offers users access to artists through streaming audio and video, literary and visual work samples, detailed biographies, multiple category search options, and a "favorites" feature to build tailored lists of artists.

In 2012, Arizona’s 100th year of statehood, many teaching artists on the roster will offer programming related to the Centennial Celebration. Consider the roster a resource as your organization or community plans events in celebration of our state's history and heritage.
