School Residency Program

ArtStart Artist Residency 2015-16

ArtStart’s artist-in-residence program focuses on unlocking each individual’s creative artist within. You can count on an ArtStart artist to spark creativity, engage students in the artistic process, and deepen learning as they create or perform.
Founded in 1988, the mission of ArtStart is to inspire artistic creativity and illuminate the connections among people, ideas and the environment through engaging artists, children, families, and communities in quality arts education experiences. Our motto is “reusing and re-imagining our community.”
