Event Description
ArtistYear is the first national AmeriCorps organization that enables artists to commit to a year of service to their country.

WHAT IS ARTISTYEAR?

Our mission is to develop, support, and place recent higher-education arts graduates across artistic disciplines at low-income schools as dedicated teaching artists, to ensure every underserved student in America has arts education through a national service arts corps.

ArtistYear is an organization born out of the traditions of service, creative excellence and expression, and obligation toward our fellow citizens. ArtistYear has leveraged lessons learned from a range of national-service and arts education programs to marshal a corps of Teaching Artists, ArtistYear AmeriCorps Fellows, to enhance and expand arts education in Title I schools.

Fellows use arts education as a tool to engage low-income students more deeply in the life of their school and community, yielding increases in school attendance, improvements in student attitudes towards their peers, school, and neighborhoods, and for themselves as 21st century learners, artists, and contributing citizens.
Fellows also support schools in becoming increasingly "arts-rich" through the life of the partnership, working with certified arts specialists to bolster a school's art department and curricular goals, building parent and faculty support for expanded arts, and supporting capacity-building efforts such as community art partnership cultivation.
Through these activities and weekly professional development training, ArtistYear AmeriCorps Fellows develop as skilled teaching artists, effective leaders, engaged citizen-artists, and active participants in our Democracy.

OUR APPROACH

ArtistYear has leveraged lessons learned from a range of national-service and arts education programs to marshal a corps of Teaching Artists, ArtistYear AmeriCorps Fellows, to enhance and expand arts education in Title I schools while nurturing a new generation of citizen-artists.

ArtistYear programming is designed to yield positive impact for:

Low-income Students: Increasing arts access for positive outcomes;
Schools and Districts: Improving climate and culture, with greater arts capacity over-time;
ArtistYear AmeriCorps Fellows: Cultivating and improving leadership, community, and workforce skills to be competitive for jobs and engaged citizen-artists.
