Teaching Artist Roster Search 

Every year, Kansas City Young Audiences recruits new programs and talent for its roster. Our current roster features over 178 artists and presents 165  programs in creative writing, dance, music, theatre, and the visual arts. These programs include performances, workshops, and professional development seminars for teachers.

Performing, visual art, and creative writing teaching artists are encouraged to create arts for learning programs to join the KCYA roster.  A panel of teaching professionals reviews all applications.  

Applications are due by October 28, 2016.              

If you would like us to preview your application is is due by October 14, 2016.              .

At this time we are not looking to contract with teaching artists from outside the greater Kansas City area.

When a Teaching Artist submits a program to the KCYA roster it is with the understanding that the specific program will be offered only through KCYA if accepted onto the roster.

A panel of teaching professionals reviews all applications.   You may also see the Young Audiences Rubrics to assist with program design and development.



 Community School of the Arts

Teaching Artists may submit their resumes throughout the year.  We are always considering new programs and instructional offerings based on the strengths of our teaching artists.

Please note that we operate the Community School of the Arts on a trimester schedule.  We offer 13 week long sessions in the Fall and in the Spring, with a 7 week Summer session.  Planning for each of these sessions begins approximately 3 months in advance.

  • "The work these men (Recipe Poetry Guild) do with my students is amazing I am continually surprised that my traditionally mute students spark up and open up in these workshops. Also, I want to say that could see these gentlemen as visting artists in residence in the KCMO school district. They are so constructive and positive."    KC Public Schools Teacher
