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 a social studies, language arts, mathematics, or sciences to enhance students’ skills in creativity, critical thinking, communication, and collaboration.
