Arts in Education Liaisons:

  • Browse and research hundreds of artists and programs using the Artist Index
  • Connect directly with artists by clicking the Contact an Artist button on each listing
  • Once you have scheduled your program, you must submit a Program Request to your BOCES
  • BOCES will approve and process your request by sending payment to the vendor and billing your school district after the services are rendered and an evaluation is received from your district

Arts Providers:

  1. Complete the Get Listed form, including 2 letters of recommendation and evidence of programming, to be submitted for BOCES approval. *You must be fingerprinted before your directory listing will be published.*
  2. Once you are approved, create your artist page, using any photos, videos, social media links, etc., that you would like, along with a program description. BOCES will verify your information is complete.
  3. To edit your page, log in and select Edit Profile on your profile page. Hover over any section to bring up a green toolbar. Select the pencil icon to begin your edits. Save your changes in the popup window, then click Update in the upper right-hand corner to submit your changes for approval. Note: updates are not published online until after they are approved by BOCES.

Recommended Photo Sizes for Artist Pages

Please pay careful attention to the ratio (width and height) and recommended size for each photo. Photos that do not match the recommend ratio may be cut off. And photos that are smaller than the recommend size will appear “pixelated” on the viewer’s screen.

Banner Photo:

Ratio: 16 x 3 – The Banner Photo is the long and narrow photo at the top of your page. In many cases, it is best to choose a decorative image without words. Like a Facebook cover photo. Recommended size: 1600 x 300 pixels.

Thumbnail Photo:

Ratio: 6 x 4 – The Thumbnail is your program’s ‘iconic’ image. It will be displayed in association with the title and description of your program on the home page. This can be your program logo, an illustration or a photo of you in action. Recommended size: 600 x 400 pixels.

4 Optional Program Photos:
Ratio: 6 x 4 – These are the photos that showcase your program, seen lower on your artist profile. Recommended size: 600 x 400 pixels.
