Artists in Residence

In this new normal, in the time of COVID-19, we are all “Artists in Residence.”
Starting on April 7thARTS Programming is going virtual!

Artists in Residence

ARTS @ Home programming kicks off this week!

Zoom is where our Teaching Artists and Youth are meeting for classes. The format we’re using is 30-minute class meetings, then taking time between classes to do weekly creative projects. Home is where the art is happening: We’re directing our creativity, imagination, and invention at our lives and surroundings, as ways of reflecting on, responding to, and connecting with each other under the conditions of Covid-19.

Today, we are all Artists in Residence — our theme of ARTS @ Home.

Some Ideas + Projects to Look Forward to:

  • Elementary-aged youth showcasing their “dream forts” – places of play + refuge.
  • Young animators creating comic book characters who double as public health heroes. 
  • Middle school photographers capturing the new realities of life indoors. 
  • Designers + makers developing new solutions for social interactions + connections.
  • Song + original music composition inspired by the ups and downs of the here and now.

Virtual programming will take place at scheduled class times via Zoom. Teaching Artists will be working with the students already currently enrolled in each classSee class schedule below.
