Program Philosophy
Workshops and residencies are developed for schools by the artist and with coordinating teachers and staff, to fit your school community and connect educationally with grade levels being served. The workshops and residencies honor core curriculum content, affirming and deepening the students' knowledge-based learning. Field trips to museums or other venues can be integrated with workshops or residencies. Collaborative residencies with other art disciplines are also encouraged.
