Residency Programs

A residency transforms the classroom into a studio by bringing a Teaching Artist into the students’ routine for a period of 6 to 16 sessions, offering students the chance to experience an art form close-up, hands-on and for an extended period. Residencies are geared toward forging deep connections and fostering creativity.

Very often, the Teaching Artist links the content of residency to something the classroom teachers are working on in the curriculum, or, something the school is working on at-large (such as linking a visual arts program to math or science topics; or using a drumming residency to foster team-building or school citizenship).

Every residency begins with a Planning Meeting between classroom teachers and the Teaching Artist to ensure a successful, collaborative experience.
