About Teaching Artists ROC
Based in Western and Central NY, Teaching Artists ROC was formed in 2017. Earlier that year, Young Audiences of Rochester shut its doors creating a void within the local education system and after-school programming for arts enrichment and curriculum support. Many teaching artists on that YAR roster were eager to continue providing quality programming that they had developed and used with great success. With that in mind, Teaching Artists ROC has a new vision, goals and fresh structure to better serve the Rochester community for decades to come.
Teaching Artists ROC is steadily moving in new directions and taking on new challenges, while still honoring the spirit and importance of arts integration in education. We are now reaching out to other artists, venues and events to develop into a more diverse organization. Who we are, what we provide, and where we are performing expands with every new day.
This is done with the skills and creativity that’s just naturally part of being a teaching artist.
We encourage you to explore the Artists & Programs available, browse the Video Showcase to see some of their talents, and/or Contact us for more information.
