PCA Arts in Education: Teacher Artist Partnership & Long Term Residency Application Overview
An Overview During , the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts (PCA) will support a limited number of Teacher Artist Partnership (TAP) Projects and Long-Term Residency (LTR) Projects. The funding available for either of these projects emphasizes long-term, in-depth interaction between professional teaching artists and students through workshops and classes sponsored by schools, non-profit organizations and units of government. Projects should enable the participants to understand the art form involved and to develop their skills and creativity through that art form. Each project is locally designed and developed by the teaching artist, the project director and host site.
Timeline Applications are due December 21, 2011 A panel of arts in education professionals will review the applications and make recommendations in February Recommendations will then be put in front of Council at the March meeting PCA will notify applicants by the end of March
What is a Teacher Artist Partnership (TAP) ? TAP projects may take place in public or private non- profit schools, early childhood education institutions or specialized schools. A TAP project is different from a traditional day artist residency in a number of ways including but not limited to the following: –It is longer in length (a minimum of 60 days or equivalent) –Both the artist and teacher teach lessons on an alternating schedule during the project period –Both the artist and teacher critique (“debrief”) the lesson following its completion either immediately after the lesson or before the end of the school day –The school/district must provide time for the teacher to be involved in the debriefing critique as well as a private location for such a conference
Continued… –The TAP team, which includes the artist, teacher, project director and school administrator, must attend the required summer TAP Institute training in Harrisburg. –In addition to the training, both the artist and teacher must agree to at least four staff development days including a pre-project day of training in the observational/debriefing structure, upfront time for detailed planning, a day during the project period for implementation assessment and evaluation, and an overall assessment/evaluation session at the conclusion of the project period. The team must also provide at least two in-service sessions for the host site faculty. –Evaluation of the TAP project will continue beyond the submission and approval of the final report to the PCA. TAP teams will be required to continue their evaluation into the subsequent year. –Both the artist and teacher will be observed by PCA staff/consultants/partners during the project period and will respond to questions about all aspects of the project at various times during the project period.
TAP Institute 2012 All TAP team members are required to attend the PCA sponsored training that will be held August 6 thru 10, 2012 in Harrisburg. At a minimum, TAP teams should include a project director, classroom teacher, the teaching artist and a school administrator. The TAP team members will learn the philosophy of the PCA TAP program, its components and the requirements for participation by schools/school districts. Act 48 credit is available through the PCA to school personnel.
What is a Long-Term Residency (LTR) ? LTR projects may take place in public or private non- profit schools, early childhood institutions, specialized schools, non-profit community organizations, public or government agencies or social institutions. A LTR project is different from a traditional artist residency in a number of ways including, but not limited to, the following: –It is longer in length (a minimum of 60 days or equivalent) –The project director is required to do observations and documentation throughout the course of the project –Both the artist and teacher will be observed by PCA staff/consultants during the project period and will respond to questions about all aspects of the project at various times during the project period
