The Arts Council of Fairfax County invites professional artists of all disciplines interested in conducting a teaching artist residency to respond to the FY16 Artist Residencies in Middle Schools Request for Proposal. The program is a collaboration between the Arts Council of Fairfax (Arts Council) and the Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) for artist residencies that engage students in cross-curricular learning through education in the arts.
I'm passing along this important opportunity for artists, musicians, and writers in Virginia. Applicants must reside, work, or have a studio in Fairfax County, Fairfax City, or the City of Falls Church.
