What is an in-school residency, you ask?
In-School Artist-in-Residence is part of WPCA’s education program developed to provide art education and cultural enrichment beyond our walls, serving students at local schools and other youth-serving agencies. The program connects artists with local schools, collaborating and working alongside teachers. Projects typically run between 4-8 weeks, created and facilitated by the artists.
