AIRS offered 8 full year studio residencies, 5 pilot residencies and 2 media arts residencies in 14 elementary schools in the Vancouver School District for the 2020/21 school year. These residencies engaged students in diverse projects and explorations that encompassed a multiplicity of different mediums and concepts.
The suspension of schools in March 2019 due to COVID-19 necessitated the relocation of the physical space of the studio to a virtual art experience online.
