Artist in Residence is a noncompetitive reimbursement grant program that provides up to $2,500 in support for North Dakota pre-K-12 students and teachers to work with professional artists either in a traditional school setting or during after-school and/or summer programs. Residencies include 20 or more contact hours spanning four days or longer (up to five hours per day of artist activities). Teaching artists work together with teachers and staff to design activities that enhance educational programs and help to address learning standards or curricular goals.
