To support the “Teacher Fellowship Program” in the 2019–20 and 2020–21 school years. The program provides professional development for Chicago Public School teachers centered on teaching with American outsider or non-mainstream art. During more than 50 program hours, teachers explore outsider art concepts, collections, and artists, and are guided in creating interdisciplinary lesson plans designed to help students make personal connections and responses to these individuals and their work. Culminating in an exhibition of student art, the program is expected to serve annually approximately 26 Chicago Public Schools teachers at 10–14 schools and 640 students.
