ARTISTS IN SCHOOLS + COMMUNITIES ROSTER

Featuring a diversity of individual artists and ensembles from Nevada and beyond, the new 2015–2018 Artists in Schools + Communities Roster (AIS+C) is designed as a resource to broaden participation in the arts through artist-led residencies and programs. Earlier this year, a virtual panel composed of arts education specialists and artists reviewed all eligible applications, and recommended 76 for inclusion on the AIS+C Roster. During its March meeting, the NAC Board approved the panel’s recommendations. AIS+C artists present residencies in one or two tracks – an education track for arts-based learning experiences in pre-K–12 settings, and a community track for arts-based learning experiences in community settings. The AIS+C Roster will be released in early May.

CHILDREN'S ART AT THE NEVADA STATE LEGISLATURE
