How You Will Contribute

For the Art Futures Program, the division of Education at the Philadelphia Museum of Art pairs ten local artists with art teachers in five public and five Catholic high schools in the Philadelphia region. Working together, each artist/teacher pairing will design a unique studio experience for their students. Duration of in-classroom collaboration between artists and art teachers will be 30 hours total, January-April 2019. Artists will receive a $2000 honorarium for their participation, as well as free admission to the Museum for one year.

Notification will be sent to the ten selected artists by Friday October 26. Selected artists must present their artwork to school art teachers at the PMA on Wednesday November 14 at 4:30 p.m.  Selected artists must also attend a planning meeting with collaborating art teachers on Wednesday December 5 at 4:30 p.m. and a wrap-up meeting on Wednesday May 1 at 4:30 p.m.

The Art Futures Program requires artists to travel approximately 15-20 times to and from a school for their residency. Though most Philadelphia schools are accessible via public transportation, some are located up to 18 miles from the center city. *A travel stipend is available to off-set the cost of the commute.
