Artists in the Schools Information Session (December 2022)
Dec 5 @ 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Informational session on Zoom for applicants to the SFCA Artists in the Schools (AITS) program for Hawaiʻi public and charter schools. AITS arts residency grants provide engaging, creative and fun learning experiences based on the Fine Arts standards for all grade levels, through residencies with qualified trained teaching artists from the Artistic Teaching Partners (ATP) Roster. Many of these teaching artists integrate their art form with other core curriculum areas, such as language arts, math, social studies, and science, meeting both Fine Arts and other core standards.

Qualified applicants are public or public charter schools in the state of Hawaiʻi. Register on Zoom: us06web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZIsceirqDorHt0aaJvabYRVrcT6UGnr3QkC.

Please help us get the word out! Hawaiʻi public and charter school classroom teachers, curriculum specialists, vice-principals, and principals can apply in tandem with a teaching artist from the SFCA Artistic Teaching Partner Roster. A flyer can be downloaded from our website: SY2023-24 SFCA AITS Flyer (PDF).
