Announcing the 2014-15 Teaching Artist Studio Artists!

We are thrilled to launch the 2014-15 Teaching Artist Studio with 19 remarkable artists! Following our sucessful pilot year in 2013-14–and thanks to generous funding from The Oregon Community Foundation, The Oregon Arts Commission, and The Oregon Cultural Trust–we have expanded the Teaching Artist Studio to include more artists from a larger geographic region.

Young Audiences’ Teaching Artist Studio is a professional development program for Oregon Teaching Artists of all art forms and levels, from emerging to established. This seven-month program connects teaching artists working in an inquiry-based approach where the creative process is front and center. Participants will dive deeply into their teaching practice by examining and articulating what lives at the heart of how and what they teach.
