The Archibolda Effect: Whimsical Mixed Media Self Portraits

Artist: Christina Delgado

Type: Residencies


The mystical and fantastical characteristics of Renaissance painter Giuseppe Arcimboldo’s works serve as the inspiration for this visual arts residency. Students create a self-portrait expressing their identity through the use of symbolism and mixed media techniques. This symbolic idea is represented by focusing on characteristic traits of who the student is now and who they will become in the future.


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 kick-off assembly
  • 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:

  • Artist assembly (see artist’s page for pricing)
  • 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.
