The primary intent of NAC-supported artist residencies for schools and community organizations is to enrich and support ongoing arts education. The artists on the Artist in Schools + Communities Roster engage students, teachers and community members in the artistic process through innovative project-based learning and modeling, not to supplant or substitute services more appropriately provided by certified teachers. To that end, in-school residencies will only be funded if they supplement an existing program or provide a service that certified teachers typically don’t offer. Artists working in K-12 residency settings may never work with students without the supervision of a teacher.

NAC staff can guide both new and experienced sponsors through the steps necessary to present a rewarding artist residency, providing information and technical assistance in such areas as planning, publicity and audience development.
