We are now accepting applications for the sixth year of the WASHINGTON STATE TEACHING ARTIST TRAINING LAB, an eight-month professional development program for teaching artists working in all artistic disciplines and in all regions across Washington State. TAT Lab focuses on arts education in K-12 public schools, working to ensure all students receive high quality arts education as part of basic education. Application deadline is July 11, 2016.

TAT Lab is intended to support mid-career teaching artists as well as those newer to the field.

The program runs September 2016 to April 2017 and includes:
Three in-person training sessions lasting 2-3 days and held in Seattle (at Seattle Center)
Five 90-minute teleconferences facilitated by a teaching artist mentor
Ongoing, individualized support from mentors and peers
Core Focus & Key Topics:
Learn about best practices in arts education
Develop strong and effective learning plans
Learn how to collaborate with K-12 teachers and use state standards to support your work
Connect with a community of dedicated teaching artists
Gain skills to assess student learning in the arts
Understand the role of social justice within the world of arts education

This is a tuition-based program ($600); scholarships are available, as well as travel support for teaching artists from outside King County. TAT Lab seeks a cohort with geographic, gender, racial/ethnic, and artistic diversity; teaching artists outside the Puget Sound region and teaching artists of color are encouraged to apply.
