Are you an educator whose student(s) received Gold Key recognition in the 2015 Scholastic Art & Writing Awards? If so, we have an amazing opportunity for you!

You could be one of three educators chosen to spend part of the summer to paint with unique materials and technologies at the GOLDEN Educators Residency in beautiful upstate New York!

GOLDEN Artist Colors and the Alliance for Young Artists & Writers, with support from the Sam & Adele Golden Foundation, have partnered to offer an unprecedented opportunity for educators whose student(s) received Gold Key recognition—in either art or writing—in the 2015 Scholastic Art & Writing Awards. Three educators will be selected to participate in a week-long artist residency, where GOLDEN experts will also be available to provide technical assistance.

Use this time to develop your own artistic practice. The residency is designed to help you open new channels for expression in your own creative process. Because, after all, your students shouldn’t get to have all the fun!

Residents will be selected by the National Art Education Association (NAEA) and the Alliance, and preference will be given to NAEA members. Non-members may still apply-if chosen, they will be provided with a one-year NAEA membership.

Residency dates: July 28–August 5, 2015

Deadline for submissions:  April 17, 2015
