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 2023-24 roster by artistic discipline.  Click on a name to view/download a detailed entry in PDF format.
