Teaching Artist Workshops: Teaching artists share their thoughts during a lesson planning workshop.

Teaching Artist Programs

The Bartol Foundation supports the professional development of teaching artists as the most direct way to improve the quality and reach of the region’s arts education programs.

Teaching Artist Workshops:  Bartol provides up to 20 free professional development programs for over 400 teaching artists annually to help make them better teachers and stronger entrepreneurs. You don’t have to be associated with a grantee to participate in these programs and programs are available for artists in all disciplines.  Best of all, all of our workshops are free!

Save the dates for our upcoming workshops below! Registration opens 4-6 weeks in advance. Make sure to also check out our other ongoing resources available on the Blog/Resources page.

If you have any issues or questions with registration, please email us at info@bartol.org
