Professional visual, fine craft and performing artists work with students and teachers to create extended educational arts activities, teach new skills, develop creative thinking, and offer career insights. Quality arts instruction provides young people with authentic learning experiences that engage minds, hearts, and bodies.
One week of Artist Residency provides four learning sessions per day, over five days (20 hours). A minimum Artist Residency is two weeks.
