San Francisco Bay Area Teachers Invited to Apply for
Fund for Artists Arts Teacher Fellowship Program
Deadline: February 10, 2006
The Fund for Artists Arts Teacher Fellowship program is a regional
initiative to support the artistic revitali- zation of outstanding
arts teachers in San Francisco Bay Area middle and high schools.
Through FFAATF, fellows design individualized courses of study that
foster their own creative work and the opportunity to interact with
other professional artists in their fields.
FAATF will award eight fellowships of up to $5,000 each, with a
complementary grant of $1,500 to the fellow's school to support post-
fellowship activities. Fellowship awards may be used to defray the
costs of tuition or fees, room and board, travel, purchase of
materials, and/or equipment for personal art-making, childcare, and
other relevant expenses. In addition, all fellows -- accompanied
by school leaders -- will be invited to convene in Fall 2006 to
share experiences and discuss relevant concerns in the arts
Eligible applicants must be permanently assigned full- or part-time
arts faculty working in public middle or high schools in Alameda,
Contra Costa, Marin, San Francisco, San Mateo, or northern Santa
Clara (Palo Alto, Mountain View, Los Altos, Los Altos Hills) county;
teachers of the visual and media arts, theater, music, dance, or
creative writing; and continuing as arts teachers in 2006-07.

guidelines and application instructions.
