The Molly Blank Fund Teaching Artist Program

The Molly Blank Fund Teaching Artist Program

The Molly Blank Fund Teaching Artists Program is designed to create teaching artists here in the Valley that have been trained in the Kennedy Center arts integration method. These teaching artists will develop residency lesson plans that will be implemented in a classroom setting. Teaching artists who complete the program will also be listed on ASU Gammage’s Teaching Artist roster helping them to secure future teaching opportunities.

The program is limited to 30 local artists (both novice and experienced) who can commit to the entire program. The application period for the 2018-2019 cohort is now closed.
