Announcing the Artists in the Classroom Directory 2018-19

We are excited to announce that the Artists in the Classroom Directory has been updated for the 2018-19 school year. The Artists in the Classroom Directory (AICD) is your guide to talented artists engaging with young people in a classroom setting across British Columbia. Practicing a variety of artistic disciplines—visual arts, music, theatre, dance, storytelling and more—these professional artists have a specific interest in working on residency style projects with young people. They bring vast experience working in schools and many have worked on projects funded by Artists in the Classroom grants.

This year we welcome 13 amazing new artists who specialize in dance, music, writing, puppetry, film, ceramics, theatre and visual arts. They are working in communities across the province from Prince George to Nelson to Victoria. Check out the list below and please join us in welcoming them to the ArtStarts family.

Explore the Artists in the Classroom Directory online at artstarts.com/aicd. You can browse the full directory of artists online—or focus your search by discipline, region or language. Read more information about each artist, see photos and discover examples of projects they offer. Educators are encouraged to get in touch with them directly to begin a creative collaboration!

Collaborate with an artist and bring learning to life through the arts! Artists, teachers, principals and PAC representatives in British Columbia are eligible to apply for Artists in the Classroom grants. Grants of up to $3,500 for small scale projects and grants of up to $10,000 for large scale projects are available. Deadlines for the 2018-19 school year are May 25, 2018 and October 18, 2018.
