I am very honored and happy to begin my residency this fall at Sheboygan North High School.
Yesterday I was able to move the majority of my supplies and equipment into the generous classroom space.
The Resident Artist is given a classroom as their own studio workspace for the duration of one semester. During that time, the artist is able to do their own work in the studio as well as be a valuable resource for faculty and curriculum outside of the visual arts.
This is a way of integrating the visiting artist’s practices and experience into the community of students of non-art academia, and tying those principals of art-making into every day scenarios.
