Artist in Residency Program


The residency’s purpose is to encourage all artists with special needs to participate in a unique creative process. This document will give a description of the Artist in Residence Program as a guide for what can be expected during the course of the program.

Objectives: to the best of their ability, students will:

learn about and understand some basic art terminology, what it means to be an artist and be exposed to art history.


The program is designed for children with special needs and varying degrees of abilities to experience tactile hand-ons creating art in various forms and various media. 

What students can expect:

An art experience inspired by a look into the Masters such as Vincent van Gogh, Salvador Dali, Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, Jackson Pollock and Michelangelo, to name a few. Students will view the work of these artists and then have a chance to explore their own creativity by making their own masterpieces.

Expression: students will learn that art can be a form of expressing their own thoughts and ideas. For our non-verbal students it will give them a visual voice.

Gallery Art Show: At the end of the program students will have the opportunity to showcase their art with a Gallery Art Show. Students will also receive a quality digital photographic image of their work produced by a professional photographer assigned to capture the event.
