Since 2000 Bunnell Street Arts Center has sponsored an independent Artists in Schools program (AIS) following the model set forth by the Alaska State Council on the Arts (AKSCA). Bunnell’s AIS program places professional artists approved by AKSCA in K–12 classrooms for residencies in all Kenai Peninsula Borough School District (KPBSD) schools. We are glad to offer this program as one that both nurtures the kids on the Kenai peninsula and practices professionalism for working artists. AIS operates on a first come, first serve basis and we encourage you to explore further to see if the program is a good fit.

Are you an artist and interested in teaching Artist in Schools programming?  
Bunnell has provided Artist in Schools programs to Kenai Peninsula k-12 schools since 2000 following the model set forth by the Alaska State Council on the Arts. To support this program, Bunnell collaborates with ASCA to train artists in best practices, AIS protocols, lesson planning, and to familiarize artists with Kenai Peninsula Borough School District Art Standards. Artists are paid $1000 per week of full-time work to teach AIS units.  Please email asia@bunnellarts.org if you’re interested in a Teaching Artists Training.
