National Endowment for the Arts – Grantee Spotlight: Teaching Artist Training Lab (TAT)

originally posted on: NEA Arts and Education Newsletter
This month, we feature the Teaching Artist Training Lab (TAT) — an eight-month professional development program for teaching artists working in all artistic disciplines in Washington State. The program includes eight days of in-person training, six teleconferences, reading assignments, expectations of practical application of the workshop learning, and ongoing support and follow-up provided by master teaching artists. Master teaching artists lead experiential workshops and follow-up sessions to support skill development in planning, implementing, and assessing standards-aligned arts lessons, in order to improve and expand high quality arts learning experiences for K-12 students in Washington State. Tat Lab has also been strengthened by key organizational partners, like Seattle Repertory Theatre (Seattle Rep), Seattle Children’s Theatre (SCT), Pacific Northwest Ballet (PNB),the Seattle Office of Arts and Culture, and 4Culture.
