Young Audiences of Northeast Texas Offers Teaching Artist Training Program

Young Audiences of Northeast Texas will be offering a program that will give local artists the opportunity to receive training to cultivate the skills necessary to create arts-integrated residencies to offer at local schools. A residency is a sequential series of classroom visits by one artist, designed to help students gain proficiency in a particular art form by immersing them in a long-term creative experience. Through the training program, artists will create residencies that will pair their artistic discipline with a content area or subject. Participants in the program will recieve roughly 50 hours of professional development over the course of 9 months, including workshops led by master teaching artists from the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington D.C. 

Young Audiences of Northeast Texas will have an information session about the program Friday, November 7th from 2 to 3 p.m. at the Tyler Musem of Art, 1300 S. Mahon Avenue.

For more information, visit the Northeast Texas Teaching Artist Training Program webpage or contact Helen Strotman at or by phone at (903) 561-2787.
