Artist Residency Program

Connecting Professional Artists with Schools

The Artist Residency Program provides opportunities for Fairfax County artists to share their expertise through unique arts education programming that supplements the school curriculum. The artists engage students in cross-curricular learning by connecting their artistic processes in a fine arts discipline with social studies, language arts, mathematics, or sciences to enhance students’ skills in creativity, critical thinking, communication, and collaboration.

 

Whether in person or online, ArtsFairfax is committed to offering ongoing  opportunities for artists to practice their crafts and the community to engage in quality arts experiences.
The 2020 program will focus on helping teaching artists adapt their residences for virtual participation.
Over the course of 4 days/sessions participants will learn how to overcome technical challenges, discuss the various formats available and the advantages of each, how to market and monetize your online arts education programs, and how to work online with students through FCPS and seniors including the Virtual Center for Active Adults.
Teaching artists, arts educators, and arts administrators may register for one or all 4 days.
