Artist Residencies

In response to COVID-19, we have moved all of our Artist Residencies to a virtual format. Our Artist Residencies are designed for school classrooms or other groups (afterschool, community, etc.) and can be integrated into remote learning.

Led by professional teaching artists, Artist Residencies foster creativity, artistic expression and self confidence in children and adults. Teaching artists work collaboratively with sites to customize programming for individual and group needs.

Participants with and without disabilities engage in hands-on, interactive arts programming led by experienced teaching artists who have experience working with individuals of varying ability levels.

Artist residencies are available in all artistic disciplines, including visual art, movement, music, drama, and creative writing.
