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.

There are several ways to engage with the ARTSFAIRFAX Artist Residency Program:

  • View the list of residencies and artists and bring an ARTSFAIRFAX Artist Residency to Your School.
  • Consider applying to be an ARTSFAIRFAX Artist in Residence in the future – click here to review information from the FY19 artist application cycle, which is now closed.  Look for information on the next cycle in early 2019.
  • Arts Education Panel: The 2019 topic, schedule, and speakers are being planned.
  • Teaching Artist Professional Development Seminar: information will be available soon.
