Our Artists

All our artists are local, professional teaching artists that cover a broad range of artistic practices including drawing, painting, weaving, carving, print-making, sculpture, textiles and photography.  Each artist, in consultation with teaching staff, develops a visual arts program for age appropriate, inquiry- based projects that connect learning across the curriculum and explore ideas or issues that are relevant and important to students and their world. The projects can be individual or collaborative, permanent or ephemeral, and can encompass a range of visual media.  

To learn more about our studios and artist projects, please see the collaborative inquiry report.

“The artist’s ability to guide and encourage helped to boost my confidence in combining various curricular content areas, competencies and school goals. The focus was on experiencing the artistic process rather than creating a product and this approach was deeply engaging for myself and my students.”
