Successful arts education residencies rely on the passion and expertise of well-trained Teaching Artists (TAs) who are dedicated to the communities in which they serve. Community-Word Project's Teaching Artist Training and Internship Program (TATIP) helps professional artists develop the skills and experience they need to work hand-in-hand with classroom teachers to reach students in the city’s neediest schools. Gradates of TATIP serve as a crucial and sustainable resource that brings art, creativity, confidence, and stability into the lives of hundreds of thousands of underserved students in New York City.
TATIP prepares professional artists to 1) work closely with classroom teachers to ensure that the individual needs of each class are being met; 2) to effectively incorporate activities into the curriculum that help students and teachers meet city- and state-mandated learning and arts standards; and 3) to draw upon their artistic expertise to create engaging exercises and assignments as part of a well-planned, long-term vision for the residency.
This year, Community-Word Project will partner with Lifetime Arts, Inc. and Elders Share the Arts, national leaders in the emerging field of Creative Aging. CWP will host an intensive training seminar for selected artists who are interested in working with older adults. Participating artists will then complete an internship with Lifetime Arts, Inc. or Elders Share the Arts in addition to their TATIP training.
TATIP graduates have gone on to work at CWP or at other cultural organizations, such as ArtsConnection, City Lore, DreamYard, Studio in a School, Teachers and Writers Collaborative, and Young Audiences New York.
TATIP is made possible through the generous support of the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, New York State Council on the Arts, Seth Sprague Educational and Charitable Foundation, DanPaul Foundation and TD Bank.
