Nauset Regional Middle School-Arts through Arts Day-Call for Artists

At Nauset Regional Middle School we celebrate the Arts through Arts Day, an all-day/all-school event where all students participate in hands-on arts activities and work alongside local Cape Cod artists. We are looking for 24 local artists to join us so we can expose students to different artistic processes such as music, dance and visual arts, and encourage them to express themselves creatively. Over the course of the day each artist will work with 3 groups of students, and a small stipend will be provided.

By choosing artists that are passionate about their local community, we are not only building students’ love of the Arts, but also creating opportunities for students to appreciate the rich resources available to them on the Cape.

If you have a workshop idea and would like to participate in Arts Day as one of our artists, please fill out the Request Proposal Form found in the link below! We are always looking for more artist- and workshop ideas. Also, please share this call for artists with others you think may be interested.
