The TeachArtsOhio (TAO) program brings schools and community organizations together with teaching artists to share engaging, personal, high-quality arts learning experiences.

The TeachArtsOhio (TAO) program brings schools and community organizations together with teaching artists to share engaging, personal, high-quality arts learning experiences. Engagements can vary from short introductory exposures lasting just a few days to in-depth immersive experiences spanning a full school year. Creative and experienced teaching artists, through TAO grant awards, offer learners the opportunity to participate in a unique creative process, bridge cultural differences, develop fresh ways of learning through the arts, and realize lasting benefits from in-person contact and collaboration with professional artists who are experienced in working with school age children and youth. TAO is an opportunity to bring a professional teaching artist into a school to supplement arts instruction. Through a collaborative effort between teachers, artists, and administrators, the program supports in-depth, sustained arts instruction and does not reduce a school's commitment to the arts.
GRANT AWARDS: The total professional fee for teaching artists in the TeachArtsOhio program is $300 per residency day. A residency day must mirror a full school day, including arrival and departure times for teachers. Grants are awarded to schools to cover the artist fees.
