HOW IT WORKS

EXPERIENCE FEE: A standard one-week residency consisting of 20 on-site classroom hours costs $1050. If your school is unable to keep the residency under 20 classroom hours, an additional fee of $40/hour will be invoiced. Please keep in mind that any additional service outside the classroom (school-wide assemblies, community performances, teacher training, and special projects) must either be scheduled in your 20 hours or your school must arrange for additional hours beforehand and notify Art Center East.

TEACHING ARTIST TRAVEL: In addition to the residency fee, schools are asked to reimburse the visiting teaching artist for one round-trip travel from the teaching artist's residence. Mileage is calculated by determining distance via Google Maps and the current mileage reimbursement set forth by the IRS and is subject to change.

ART SUPPLIES: Some of our teaching artists are able to provide supplies for your students, but most residencies require your school to purchase supplies in addition to supplies your classrooms may already have. Teaching artists are frequently able to purchase supplies at a discount - please be sure to ask as you plan your residency with your teaching artist.

LODGING: Schools are asked to find lodging accommodations for out-of-town teaching artists. However, schools are not required to provide hotel/motel accommodations, but some hotels/motels can provide lodging as an in-kind donation to the school. Typically, schools arrange for a community member to host a teaching artist throughout the duration of the residency. We respectfully request that teaching artists receive a private room.
