Art21 Educators Program

Art21 Educators is an intensive, year-long professional development initiative and learning community. The program is designed to support K–12 educators in any subject area who are interested in bringing contemporary art, artists, and themes into classroom teaching and learning.

Art21 Educators is made possible in part by the National Endowment for the Arts, Brenda R. Potter, the Andreas Foundation, the LeRoy Neiman and Janet Byrne Neiman Foundation, and by individual contributors.

The application deadline for the 2023–2024 year of Art21 Educators is March 31, 2023 at 11:59 p.m. ET
