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.
