Art-in-Education Workspace Residency: Women’s Studio Workshop
ART-IN-ED WORKSPACE RESIDENCY
The Art-in-Ed Workspace Residency is a four- to five-week opportunity for artists with teaching experience; knowledge of intaglio, silkscreen, or hand papermaking; and an interest in creating their own work while also working with local school students. Artists may choose to work on their own projects in any of our studio disciplines.
Our Art-in-Education (AIE) program is a model for arts education and operates in conjunction with the Kingston City School District. AIE provides a high quality arts experience by bringing students to a professional artist’s workspace and giving them concentrated time to learn printmaking, papermaking, and book arts.
During a five-week residency, artists teach in WSW’s studios two days/week for three weeks and visit the students twice in school. In exchange for teaching, residents receive onsite housing and 24/7 studio access during non-AIE sessions. Spring residents work with elementary and/or middle school students.
