The Center for Arts in Education invites arts teachers from public, magnet or charter arts high schools and Title 1 high schools and middle schools to apply for funding for artistic development through its National Artist Teacher Fellowship (NATF) program, formerly known as the Surdna Arts Teachers Fellowship (SATF). The program offers arts teachers the opportunity to immerse themselves in their own creative work, interact with other professional artists, and stay current with new practices.
The purpose of this fellowship is to expand the applicant’s artistic range and abilities in the making of art.
Applicants must be a) permanently assigned full or part-time faculty and be minimally in their fifth year of teaching arts in a public, magnet or charter arts high school. Or b) Title 1 school teachers who are in their fifth year of teaching at a public middle or high school with a commitment to the arts. The following arts disciplines are eligible: Visual Arts, Theatre, Music, Dance, Film, Creative Writing, Architecture, Design, Multi-Media and Multi-Disciplinary Arts.
