Teaching Artist Roster

To apply, click here to access the RISCA grant portal for individuals.

RISCA Education Roster is a list of Rhode Island teaching artists who have been reviewed by public panels both for their artistic quality and their ability to work in educational settings. Artists are listed by discipline and are recommended for participation in Project Grants in Education (PGE). The Roster is also widely used as public resource by educational sites and individuals. Artists can renew their listings annually, provided they are active professionally as teaching artists. Those working in schools are also asked to complete a yearly BCI background check in accordance with Rhode Island law.

Successful applicants demonstrate:

  • Mastery of an artistic discipline
  • Knowledge and expertise in sequential arts instruction
  • Good communication skills
  • Planning and organizational ability
  • Understanding of PK-12 learners

RISCA Education Roster will be part of New England Foundation of the New England Foundation for the CreativeGround website, which will provide even broader opportunities for RI teaching artists regionally.
