An Arts for Learning Northwest Residency is a sequential series of at least three visits by an individual artist with a classroom and is designed to help students gain proficiency in a particular art form by immersing them in a long-term creative experience.
Through Workshops, artists provide an introductory encounter with an art form, which can help students (classroom workshops), teachers (teacher workshops), and families (Family Arts Night workshops) become more comfortable and confident with a variety of art forms.
