About the programs

Artist residencies provide unique interactions with practicing artists at your school, and can be designed to animate curriculum or address specific themes using visual art to help your students master techniques and understand concepts. Residencies can also be structured around a project for your school. Every residency is different and customized to your students.

Artists work together with students and teachers to creatively explore concepts and master techniques. This dynamic interaction provides students with an alternative vehicle for learning.
