The Art Educators Residency is a unique, mentored opportunity to work at prominent museums, schools, or art centers in Puebla with diverse groups of students from 6 to 18 years old, or with university-level students through our ongoing collaboration with BUAP (the Distinguished Autonomous University of Puebla). Projects should make an emphasis on both the process and the end result, promoting activities in which students play an active role, integrating the cultural-exchange experience as part of the teaching-learning process. All proposals should include

1. an introduction describing the educational approach, pedagogic references, etc.;
2. a description of the proposed activities, goals, target students, equipment and materials needed;
3. a description of the expected educational outcomes.
