Artists interested in becoming a teaching artist with the Mansfield Partners in Education program must complete a year-long required training, available locally, meeting approximately six days between September 2017-June 2018. Training cost is $150, and a limited amount of financial assistance is available.

  • Attend at least three arts integration workshops presented by the Ohio 2010 team (Mansfield, Ohio).

See attached schedule for current workshop dates.
