Are you a teaching artist (or do you know of one) living on the North Olympic Peninsula that wants to make a difference in the lives of school-aged children?

Field Arts & Events Hall at the Port Angeles Waterfront Center is launching a new arts education program called PENINSULA PERFORMS that connects arts providers directly to students and educators in the Port Angeles School District. This curriculum-based arts integration approach uses music, dance, theater, and visual arts to find new entry points into learning and aligns with both Common Core State Standards and National Core Arts Standards.

Arts providers can be independent teaching artists, cultural & heritage organizations, performing artists/companies, or art institutions. All arts providers working with PENINSULA PERFORMS will be fairly compensated. Supporting artists is one of our core values.

Interested arts providers must:

1. Be at least 21 years old.

2. Reside on the North Olympic Peninsula.

3. Represent a unique and clearly articulated art form.

4. Have previously taught, led, or performed your program before a group of people or students.

5. Identify a natural connection between your program and an academic area.

6. Be flexible in adapting your program to a school learning environment.

7. Be available during some traditional school days/hours.

The first step to apply is completing the Teaching Artist Program Proposal below.
