The National Art Education Association and The Marie Walsh Sharpe
Art Foundation will co-sponsor the 1998 Teacher-Artist Program (TAP) to
recognize and reward up to six outstanding K-12 art educators in public and
private schools for exemplary teaching and artistic achievements. This
summer residential program on the campus of The Colorado College, Colorado
Springs, Colorado focuses on teachers as artists and provides an
opportunity for those selected to concentrate on their artistic growth in
drawing and painting. TAP is held in conjunction with the Sharpe Art

opportunity to observe gifted high school juniors working in a studio

Teachers selected receive full tuition awards (tuition, room and
board) and all seminar related costs-studio space for drawing and painting
is provided. Some art supplies are furnished with up to $100 per teacher
available for personal requests of additional art supplies. Supplies are
provided through a grant from BINNEY & SMITH INC., makers of Crayola=AE and
Liquitex=AE art materials.

The Teacher-Artist Program is open to members of the National Art
Education Association who are full-time, K-12 art teachers in public or
private schools with 5 years teaching experience and a concentration in
drawing and painting. NAEA board members and past TAP recipients are
ineligible. Applications will be mailed to all NAEA K-12 art teachers.
