Community-Word Project's is now accepting applications for their 2015-2016 Teaching Artist Training & Internship Program (TATIP). TATIP helps professional artists develop the skills needed to work effectively with classroom teachers to reach kids in New York City's Title I schools and public libraries. Graduates of TATIP serve as an invaluable resource that brings art, creativity, confidence and stability into the lives of thousands of kids. TATIP prepares professional artists to: collaborate with classroom teachers to ensure the needs of each class are met; incorporate creative activities into the curriculum that help students and teachers meet city- and state-mandated literacy and arts standards; and integrate their creative elements to develop engaging exercises as part of a long-term vision for the residency. There are tuition fees. Partial scholarships available. Questions can be directed to TATIP@communitywordproject.org. Applications are due September 14, 2015.
