The Drawing Zoo: Art Meets Science

Artist: Brittany Roger

Type: Residencies

Brittany RogerDrawing Zoo Art Meets ScienceDrawing Zoo Art Meets Science


In this five-day residency, students will explore different elements of visual art correlated to a different LIVE visiting animal. To appreciate the animal and learn how it fits with a particular environment, students will be able to closely observe and touch the animal and record their observation through art. These practices push artists to their highest levels of thinking and making.


Typically, residencies range from $2,000 to $3,000, but we can use your available budget and ‘work backwards’ to create a cost-effective residency for your school. We may be able to assist you in securing grant and funding opportunities.

Residencies are tailored to your needs but usually include:

  • A required orientation meeting and planning session
  • A set of workshops for classes of up to 25 students each
  • A student culminating or sharing event
  • An evaluation meeting

For a rough estimate, residency prices include:

  • A set of workshops ($100 each)
  • A required orientation meeting and planning session ($100 each)
  • An evaluation meeting ($100)
  • Mileage and supply costs depend on artist location and the residency chosen.
