Re: [teacherartexchange] Compensation for Artist in Residence.

Six years ago - before I retired, my district had an agreement with
Arts Partners to
bring artists into schools. It was for one artist for a week or four
artists each for a
day each. I only took advantage of single days and they were under a
contract to
be in the school for four hours each time. I could choose from a list
they provided.
Often I choose artists not on the list and they always approved the
artist. At that
time the compensation was $90 per day. I'm sure you could work out an
agreement with an artist.
