Announcing Community~Word Project's Teaching Artist Training and Internship
Program (TATIP) for the 2010-2011 School Year
We are pleased to announce the 11th year of TATIP, which offers practicing
artists and MFA students the opportunity to transform their creative process
into teaching tools to integrate the arts into the public school curriculum.
Through this program, participants gain skills that enable them to reach out
to underserved youth while gaining experience in NYC classrooms.
This training gives participants the opportunity to identify and explore
their own creative and thinking processes and then to transform these
processes into effective teaching tools. These tools become the foundation
from which one can build and implement a meaningful curriculum. Throughout
the training, participants will gain real-life classroom experience through
our internship program as they assist experienced Community-Word Project
