The Art Educators Residency is a unique opportunity to work at prominent museums, schools, or art centers in Puebla with diverse groups of students from 6 to 18 years old. 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.
