VAIS Teaching Artist Roster
The key to the success of our program lies in the quality of artists VAIS attracts to share their knowledge with our students. The VAIS Roster is a resource for classroom teachers, offering a list of vetted professional artists, residency ideas, and professional background information.
Please check the list below for artists on the 2021-22 roster by artistic discipline. Click on a name to view/download a detailed entry in PDF format. When considering classroom projects in this unusual academic year, applicants are encouraged to imagine learning through online synchronous & asynchronous platforms, as well as hybrid/online models.
Artists wishing to teach with VAIS are invited to apply at any time by sending a letter of interest and resume to firstname.lastname@example.org.
