AUGUSTA — The Maine Arts Commission is accepting applications for spring submissions to its PK-12 Teaching Artists Roster.

The application deadline is 5 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 13. The roster, launched in 2014 and available online at, includes Maine artists whose applications reflect their expertise and commitment to providing learning opportunities for students and/or teachers in PK-12 educational settings.

There are currently 56 artists on the roster in disciplines including dance, literary arts, media arts, music, theater and visual arts. Applications are accepted only two times per year.

The commission defines teaching artists as professional artists who are dedicated to lifelong learning and arts education, have made it an integral part of their professional practice and who have cultivated skills as educators in concert with their skills as artists.
