Who can Host an Artist Residency?
Pennsylvania schools, institutions, arts organizations, government agencies, local arts agencies, institutions of higher education and other not-for-profit, tax-exempt organizations with 501(c)(3) status are eligible for Arts in Education match funding.
What counties do you work in?
I primarily work in Erie County, Crawford County, and Venango County. However, as a Rostered Teaching Artist, I can work in any county in Pennsylvania.
What does a Residency cost?
The cost varies depending on length of residency (5-60 days), project supply needs, and available funding through PA Council on the Arts. Host sites can receive a 50% match of funding for artist residencies when available.
What does the timeline for planning a residency look like?
Due to the timing of budgets and the limited number of available residencies in a year, schools or organizations should reach out as early as possibly, preferably 6 months prior to the anticipated start date of a residency.
3 months - 1 year before start date:
What does a typical Residency day look like?
When the residency is in session, I will work with each “core group” of students every day that I am there. Typically a session with each “core group” is 45 - 75 minutes in length. A school residency schedule might look like this:
9:25-10:15 - Group 1
10:15 - 12:15 - Artist Planning Time/Meeting Time
12:20-1:10 - Group 2
1:15 - 2:05 - Group 3
2:30 - Artist/Teacher Debrief
