Currently, Engaging Creative Minds is working in the Charleston County School District with future plans to expand to Berkeley County next year and then Dorchester2 soon thereafter.

Engaging Creative Minds artists work closely with our staff and collaborate with classroom teachers to design arts-integrated experiences that inspire students and exceed expectations. Therefore, our teaching artists are selected for both the quality of their artistry and the educational content of their programs. Applicants are encouraged to apply, even if their programming is still under development, with the understanding that roster artists may be asked to participate in on-going, professional development in order to secure residencies in our schools.

For questions about our application or enrollment periods, or if you would like to make arrangements to submit additional media reflecting your work, such as photos, CD’s, DVD’s, or video links, contact Erin Leigh at or by phone at 843.789.0450.

We hope to hear from you and look forward to working with you to change the world and engage all students in an arts-integrated curriculum! To download the application: ECM Artist Application Summer 2013.
