qualifications and fine art accomplishment
-been put on a Roster listing for the State so that they may be qualified

-maintains an exhibition/performance/publication schedule that is
commiserate with the time provided by the residency
I am one of these such creatures.
I have served for 5 years in this capacity doing 9 month residencies in a
school in my district. (I have done this while getting my MA)
I am certified K-12.
My current series of paintings is from photos taken in Santa Fe and I have
worked most prevalently in found object assemblages for the past 10 years.
I am a mom of three peering at the workplace and searching for alternatives.
If I may be of any help to you concerning this program, I would be happy to.
The Kentucky Arts Council takes our of state artists from time to time. (The
kicker would be your ability to come and work here in the state.)
There are many more programs than just the art-in-the-school programs.
