ArtistYear is the first national AmeriCorps program for artists to dedicate themselves to a year of service to our country. 


4 million disadvantaged youth in our nation do not have access to arts education (National Endowment of Arts). Yet research shows when underserved students are involved in the arts, they reap significant academic, social, and personal benefits.  ArtistYear’s mission is to address this Arts Education Gap by ensuring every underserved student in America has arts education through a National Service Arts Corps.

We do so by developing, supporting and placing exceptional ArtistYear AmeriCorps Fellows--recent higher-education arts graduates across artistic disciplines including actors, creative writers, dancers, designers, filmmakers, musicians, photographers, and visual artists --as full-time Teaching Artists at low-income schools. Once placed in a low-income school with a partner teacher, each Fellow provides 1700 hours of arts education, deepening the quality of, and exposure to, arts standards via “Push-In” Classes (integrating arts with other subjects), Arts Clubs (arts programming linked to school-day curriculum) and Arts Interventions (small group sessions for off-track/at risk youth). 

This innovative strategy significantly bolsters arts education for our nation’s most vulnerable youth, with all its attendant benefits, while also improving student academic engagement, enhancing school climate and capacity, benefiting the larger community, and underscoring the importance of service for the next generation of Citizen-Artists.

Our rolling application process is open! We are currently accepting applications for 2020-2021 in the following locations*:

  - The Borough of Queens, New York
  - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
  - The Sandhills, North Carolina
  - Roaring Fork Valley, Colorado

  - APR 27, 2020 - DEADLINE
  - JUN 01, 2020 - DEADLINE

ArtistYear is an organization born out of the traditions of service, artistic excellence and expression, and obligation toward our fellow citizens. ArtistYear Fellows use their artistry and training to facilitate positive and sustainable outcomes for students, schools, and themselves. Our Program is designed to yield changes for:  

Low-income Students: Fellows use arts education as a tool to engage low-income students more deeply in the life of their school and community, yielding increases in school attendance, improvements in student attitudes towards their peers, school, and neighborhoods, and for themselves as 21st-century learners, artists, and contributing citizens.

Schools & District: Fellows also act as “capacity builders” for a school’s emerging arts program, supporting existing arts specialists or school leadership with arts partner cultivation, arts field trip preparations, and arts resource procurement.

ArtistYear AmeriCorps Fellows: Through these activities and weekly professional development training, Fellows develop as skilled teaching artists, effective leaders, engaged citizen-artists, and active participants in our Democracy. 

An ArtistYear AmeriCorps Fellow’s role and responsibilities during their service year include:

A full-time (40 hours) service week in a Title I school, inclusive of:

Direct teaching and school common-time hours

Communication, meeting, planning, and preparation hours

Founded and headquartered in Philadelphia, ArtistYear became an independent 501(c)3 in 2016, thanks to a generous gift from the late H. F. “Gerry” Lenfest.  It launched a pilot in 2016-2017, with 9 Fellows serving over 1,200 high-need Philadelphia students in partnership with the School District of Philadelphia, higher-education partner's Curtis Institute of Music and Drexel University, and community arts organizations such as The Barnes Foundation.

In Summer 2017, ArtistYear was awarded $1.45 million in AmeriCorps funding over three years, the first-ever national organization dedicated to service through the arts to receive AmeriCorps funding and recognition from the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS), the federal agency that oversees AmeriCorps and national volunteering initiatives. ArtistYear expanded operations to three locations—Philadelphia, PA; NYC’s Borough of Queens, in partnership with the NYC Department of Education; and rural Colorado in partnership with Aspen Music Festival & School and the Roaring Fork School District. In 2018-2019, after receiving 30 additional PennSERVE AmeriCorps positions for Philadelphia Fellows along with support from CMA Foundation, New York Community Trust, Neubauer Family Foundation, William Penn Foundation, and others, ArtistYear more than doubled its impact with 57 Fellows serving annually, teaching 15,000 non-duplicated youth twice-weekly, delivering over 96,000 hours of arts education in the three locations.

To date, ArtistYear has trained and placed 137 ArtistYear Fellows to serve as full-time teaching artists in 51 low-income schools, collectively engaging over 35,000 (non-duplicated) students at Title I schools, delivering over 233,000 hours of arts instruction.  11% of the ArtistYear alums have been hired by a school district as a certified arts specialist post their service year. 95% of school leaders reported that their ArtistYear Fellow’s presence and program at the school led to increased student engagement and school attachment, resulting in positive effects on attendance and academic performance.

ArtistYear provides equal employment opportunities to all Employees and applicants for employment without regard to race, color, ancestry, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, marital status, religion, age, disability, gender identity, results of genetic testing, or service in the military. Equal employment opportunity applies to all terms and conditions of employment, including hiring, placement, promotion, termination, layoff, recall, transfer, leave of absence, compensation, and training.

Brief Description: 

My backstory:


My name is Grace Gutekanst. I am an artist, always have been. I am young (25) but I have gotten very far in life with my love for art, culture, and humanity.  I did not come from a wealthy family but I worked my way up and have worked for and with extremely wealthy people.  After graduating from Savannah College of Art and Design with a BFA in Painting, I worked 4 jobs in Charlotte, NC, USA before I networked my way to becoming an Art Coordinator for a couple from South Africa who had lived all over the world and had an art collection of over 200 pieces. I helped categorize, photograph, help refurbish, and organize their huge collection, as well as go to private art openings and dinners at The Mint Museum with artists and collectors.  From there, I worked solely as an artist, and living as an artist, through commissions of large oil paintings for a jeweler in Washington, DC, USA.  (One painting I did was a 6 foot by 3 foot double sided oil painting of diamonds hung in a glass room.)  


I relocated in March 2015 to Phnom Penh, Cambodia, when asked by MILK Magazine to work for them. I brought in over 90% of their ad sales and raised there social media drastically. Afterwards, I moved to the position of Editor in Chief of Ladies Magazine, a women's lifestyle magazine featuring Asian celebrities.  At the same time I oversaw and was Editor in Chief of the teen magazine, Justeen. I had a team of over 30 below me and worked there for over one year. While I was Editor in chief of 2 magazines, I painted at night and had an exhibition in Siem Reap, Cambodia and Phnom Penh, Cambodia.  My work was featured in The Phnom Penh Post, AsiaLIFE Magazine, The Cambodia Daily, Khmer Times, and This is She Magazine.  


After quitting my job as Editor in Chief of Ladies Magazine, I have been helping a startup magazine, doing freelance interior design, and selling artwork.  I am leaving Cambodia after MCing Phnom Penh Designer's Week (for the second time) in the first week of May 2017 and heading to Manchester. Ideally, I would love to move to Manchester, but I am looking for a job that is a good fit. 

I hope this gives you a good feel for who I am as a person. I am an optimistic go-getter and empathetic artist.  If I seem to be a good fit, please let me know.
