Artist in Residence

Program description

Enhancing student learning outcomes in schools

ArtMix Artist in Residence program uses the arts to enhance education in the classroom. From preschool to grade 12, students with disabilities will expand on curriculum through the arts. ArtMix teaching artists work with classroom teachers to create a lesson plan that meets the needs of the students. Then our teaching artist will team teach with the classroom teacher, while providing tools and techniques that can be used after the residency has ended.

As professional artists, ArtMix Teaching Artists have expertise in one or more arts disciplines and skills in working with students, youth, adults and teachers. Teaching Artists are also familiar with various disabilities and effective methods for adapting techniques and differentiating instruction to reach all learners.
