The Arts-in-Education (AIE) Artists Roster is a resource for organizations to find professional teaching artists for hands-on learning experiences. The AIE Artists Roster includes individual artists in all disciplines as well as performing arts companies. Interested artists apply for inclusion in the roster and are juried by a statewide panel of professionals on the basis of the quality of their work, their record of professional achievement, and their skills and experience as educators.
