CWP’s Teaching Artist Training Program- Deadline Mon Sept 27th

The application deadline is fast approaching, but there’s still time to submit your application.  All application materials for CWP’s Teaching Artist Training and Internship Program must be received by 10am on Monday September 27th.


Community-Word Project pleased to announce the 11th year of TATIP, which offers practicing artists and MFA students the opportunity to transform their creative process into teaching tools to integrate the arts into the public school curriculum. Through this program, participants gain skills that enable them to reach out to under-served youth while gaining hands-on experience in NYC classrooms.

This training gives participants the opportunity to identify and explore their own creative and thinking processes and then to transform these processes into effective teaching tools. These tools become the foundation from which one can build and implement a meaningful curriculum. Throughout the training, participants will gain real-life classroom experience through our internship program as they assist experienced Community-Word Project teaching artists in NYC public schools.

*PLEASE NOTE:  There is a $100.00 tuition contribution fee payable upon acceptance to the program (for the Advanced and New & Beginning levels only.) Scholarships will be available; details and procedure for requesting scholarships will be forthcoming with notice of acceptance.

Application Deadline: 10am on Monday September 27th 2010

The application can be downloaded directly from our website.  Early applications are encouraged.  Applications must be received in full by the deadline in order to be considered.  Late materials will not be accepted under any circumstances.

There are three levels of training offered; one for beginning and new teaching artists, one for undergraduate artists, and another for those advanced artists that have at least two years experience working with under-served youth in the public school environment.  Applicants will be notified of acceptance by Friday October 1st.
