Who Should Watch This Program

As a model of successful collaboration between schools and local arts organizations, “Working With Local Artists” is a valuable inservice training resource for classroom teachers and arts specialist teachers who work — or are planning collaborations — with professional artists in their communities.

Other audiences for this program might include:

  • visiting artists, to acquaint them with the idea of classroom collaborations and to orient them to classroom practices, teaching techniques, standards, and assessments;
  • local arts organization administrators, to establish expectations and responsibilities for planned collaborations;
  • prospective funders for a visiting artist or artist residency, to help them envision the possibilities for collaboration at your school;
  • curriculum or arts project planners, to help them expand their ideas about how to bring the arts into a unit of study; and
  • administrators, parents, school board members, and government officials, to promote the idea of a visiting-artist program.
