This handbook is a directory of residency programs for artists and Arts in Education (AIE) programs. It is arranged on a state by state basis, listed alphabetically by state. The catalog includes 52 states and territories. The residency program for 1991-92 is discussed for each state and territory. The application and panel review process is described for each entry. Features of and requirements for each residency program are listed. Some of the entries include special notes and comments or listings of other Arts Endowment AIE supported activities. Special problems are addressed in particular areas such as the difficulty of travel and high teacher turnover in Alaska. Each entry includes mistakes that have been made in that program and advice to help others in the field to avoid similar problems and errors. A sample of the advice given is: trust your artists; be patient; make sure teachers "own" the project; have a project coordinator; and do not underestimate the time needed to design and implement written arts curricula. Dance programs beginning in several states and territories are described. Teacher training workshops and inservices are listed. Addresses, phone numbers, and contact people are included for each entry. Brief descriptions provide information on programs currently in existence and suggestions for the kinds of programs that are desired. (DK)
