PIERRE - Artists are reminded that the deadline for artists to apply to the South Dakota Arts Council's teaching artist roster for the Artists in Schools and Communities (AISC) program is Oct. 1.

The Artists in Schools and Communities program provides intensive, hands-on training in all arts disciplines to students of all ages across the state by providing funds to schools and nonprofit organizations that bring in groups and individuals for artist residencies. The artists are responsible for developing their residency lesson plans. Residencies are coordinated through the South Dakota Arts Council office, as part of the Arts in Education program.

Artists interested in applying for the Artists in Schools and Communities roster must apply online through the SDAC's e-grants system. Hard copies of the applications will not be accepted.

For complete programming information about the teaching artist program and the link to the e-grants system, visit www.artscouncil.sd.gov/grants/aiscartist.aspx . Contact SDAC's director of arts education programming with questions: rebecca.cruse@state.sd.us .

An office of the South Dakota Department of Tourism, the South Dakota Arts Council's mission is to provide grants and services to artists, arts organizations and schools across the state, with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts and the South Dakota Legislature.
