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.
- Arts Education Panel: On Saturday, September 14th, ARTSFAIRFAX convened experts in the field for Think Like an Artist: Creativity in the Classroom: featuring speakers Dr. Kimberly Sheridan, Julie Carmean, and moderated by Tara Taylor. For more information please click here.
