Oklahoma Teaching Artist Roster Application

The Oklahoma Teaching Artist Roster is a resource for connecting professional teaching artists with learners of all ages in schools and communities throughout the state. Roster artists may lead artist residencies in a variety of formats and locations, including schools, camps, youth and adult workshops, art therapy programs, and master classes. Oklahoma Arts Council grant funding may be available for schools and organizations to provide programs led by roster artists.

Roster artists are not employees of the Oklahoma Arts Council. To join the roster, artists must demonstrate exceptional artistic and instructional abilities through a rigorous application and interview process.
