You may want to get in touch with folks from your local arts agencies who
generally know of artists who are prepared as Artist in Residence folk.
Typically, State Councils for Arts have roster artists that they suggest be
placed in schools as Artists in Education Programs - these local arts
agencies often provide matching grant funds for these type of endeavors
too. Also you may want to contact your state Alliance for Arts Education.
I recommend going to the internet and conducting a search for your state
arts agencies and talk to folks there. I used to be a roster artist in
residence for the state of Pennsylvania many years ago in-between my jobs
as an art teacher in the public schools. My experiences were good ones and
I recommend that you follow through with this. I don't know the formal
structure and governance of organizations in Florida but you should
certainly explore these possibilities and give it the 'ol college try.
Good luck in your work and thanks for all you do creatively for children in

Subject: Artist in Residence
Does anyone know of an artist in residence for hire. My school has been
searching all year and can't come up with anyone interested in visiting our
campus to share their talent. The PTA has given us a few thousand dollars
and I'd hate to loose that budget. They would need to visit with K-8 grade
and stay for about a week. We are located in Clearwater Florida and are
willing to pay travel expenses. Any suggestions???
