stARTSomething seeks artists for program

Julia Scheib

StARTSomething, a regional program sponsored by the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts and the Cultural Alliance of York County, is seeking teaching artists to serve as educators in schools and at other sites.

All artists, including visual, performing, media and literary artists, will be accepted for consideration by the program, but the program is especially interested in those who use their art to teach core curriculum in schools or inspire aging adults.

Participants in the Artist Residencies — educational experiences customized for a school or other site to integrate an art form into the teacher’s core curriculum or as a tool for healthy aging — will be compensated, and their educational programs should last at least 20 days, a news release states.

Applications are available online at or by calling (717) 812-9255. Applications are due March 18.

An information session for interested artists is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 14, in the Susquehanna Conference Room at the Wolf Center for Philanthropy, 14 W. Market St., York.

If you can't attend the session in York, there are sessions slated to happen in Chambersburg and Gettysburg as well.

An information session is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Jan. 7 at the Grove Family Library, 101 Ragged Edge Road, Chambersburg, and another is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 11, in the Eisenhower Room at Gettysburg Library, 140 Baltimore St., Gettysburg.

If you cannot attend an informational session but want information, call Gayle at (717) 812-9255.
