San Francisco Bay Area Teachers Invited to Apply for
Fund for Artists Arts Teacher Fellowship Program
Deadline: February 10, 2006
The Fund for Artists Arts Teacher Fellowship program is a regional
initiative to support the artistic revitali- zation of outstanding arts
teachers in San Francisco Bay Area middle and high schools.
Through FFAATF, fellows design individualized courses of study that foster
their own creative work and the opportunity to interact with other
professional artists in their fields.
FAATF will award eight fellowships of up to $5,000 each, with a
complementary grant of $1,500 to the fellow's school to support
post-fellowship activities. Fellowship awards may be used to defray the
costs of tuition or fees, room and board, travel, purchase of materials,
and/or equipment for personal art-making, childcare, and other relevant
expenses. In addition, all fellows -- accompanied by school leaders --
will be invited to convene in Fall 2006 to share experiences and discuss
relevant concerns in the arts education field.
Eligible applicants must be permanently assigned full- or part-time arts
faculty working in public middle or high schools in Alameda, Contra Costa,
Marin, San Francisco, San Mateo, or northern Santa Clara (Palo Alto,
Mountain View, Los Altos, Los Altos Hills) county; teachers of the visual
and media arts, theater, music, dance, or creative writing; and continuing
as arts teachers in 2006-07.
