New Jersey: Artists-In-Education Residency Handbook

The New Jersey State Council on the Arts (NJSCA) is using a new Artists-in-Education (AIE) Residency Handbook. Funded by The Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation, the handbook contains information, tools and resources for sponsor sites and artists in residence to consult throughout the residency process. It expands on the components present in the Artists-in-Education Residency Guidelines and offers best practices applicable to any residency. The handbook was developed by the AIE Consortium—NJSCA working in partnership with Arts Horizons and Young Audiences New Jersey, two of the state’s most well-recognized arts education providers. The AIE Consortium sponsors the Artist-in-Education Program, the cornerstone of the overall NJSCA Arts Education Program. Through AIE, professional teaching artists are placed in long-term (20- to 100-day) in-school residencies statewide. It is the intent of the AIE Consortium that teachers, school and arts administrators, site coordinators and artists will use the AIE Residency Guidelines and the handbook in tandem when developing their residency proposals and then as instructional support throughout the residency process. To find out more, contact NJSCA Senior Program Officer in Arts Education Robin Middleman.
