The Education Roster of the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts is a list of Rhode Island teaching artists who have been reviewed by public panels both for their artistic quality and their ability to work in educational settings. Artists are listed by discipline in accordance with standards set by the National Endowment for the Arts.

Successful education applicants demonstrate:

·Mastery of an artistic discipline

·Knowledge and expertise in sequential arts instruction

·Good communication skills

·Planning and organizational ability

·Understanding of PK-12 learners

RISCA's Education Roster is part of New England Foundation of the New England Foundation for the Arts' CreativeGround website and is the search tool being used on this website, which will provide even broader opportunities for RI teaching artists regionally.
