Juneau Teaching Artist Roster

The Juneau Teaching Artist Roster identifies local and regional artists who have qualified to provide in-school residencies for Juneau School District schools. The Artists In Schools program, offered by the Juneau Arts and Humanities Council, provides "mini-grant" opportunities for individual schools to receive support to contract local teaching artists for week long residencies where they work directly with students in and through their own arts discipline.
