Artist Time: Residencies range from 10-40 hours, and we encourage deep arts learning through long projects. VAIS pays artists hourly for their classroom contact time. Additionally, artists will be paid 1 planning hour for every 10 hours of classroom contact time, with a 2 hour minimum. This compensation is given specifically to support residency planning and assessment between the artist and teacher(s). Carefully consider how much time your project will require and fill in below.

Question Title

Materials: There is a maximum of $4 per student for materials.  After discussion with your artist partner, please list materials and their costs here.

Question Title

Supplemental: Some projects may benefit from additional support in terms of time or materials, especially Public Art Projects. VAIS tries very hard to accommodate these requests when funding is available. Please indicate whether your residency may need this supplemental funding and explain the need here.

APPLICATION NARRATIVE:
The VAIS Review Committee will meet to evaluate each application for its potential to clearly enhance and build on existing curriculum, as well as to foster the artistic processes of Creating, Performing, Responding, and Connecting.  These concepts are the framework developed by the National Coalition for Core Arts Standards and are used as the foundation for the Washington State Arts Learning Standards (updated in May 2017).  If funded, you will be asked to evaluate how your project supported these standards.   
Essentially, each funded project must:
·     Develop age-appropriate ways to assure that each student has an opportunity to acquire new arts concepts, techniques, and vocabulary.
·     Have students present their work to others and reflect on what they have experienced using assessment skills unique to the arts discipline.
·     Demonstrate formative and/or summative assessment tools used to evaluate the effectiveness of instruction, improve project design, and to deepen student learning.
 
 
With this in mind, please work closely with your artist partner to submit a project narrative addressing the following questions:
