Visiting Artist Program

Visiting Artist Program

The Visiting Artist Program (VAP) enhances accessibility to arts education by pairing artists or organizations with undeserved communities located in the counties of Benton, Carroll, Cass, Clinton, Fountain, Howard, Jasper, Newton, Montgomery, Pulaski, Tippecanoe, Tipton, Warren, and White. Through generous support from The McAllister Foundation, the program provides engaging instruction for students in grades K-12. Artists and organizations working in all disciplines of the visual and performing arts are invited to apply during each program cycle.

The goals of the program are:

  • To increase access to quality arts instruction for youths in grades K-12.
  • To develop relationships between artists, young people, and communities in the region..
  • To elevate the relevancy of art making in its diverse forms.

Artists and organizations work with host sites to present a workshop or series of classes. Currently, the program provides up to $2,500 per project for artist fees and supplies. The Tippecanoe Arts Federation acts as facilitator to pair artists and host sites, help determine costs, and aid in program outreach.
