Art-in-ed Workspace Residency

hands-on-art Art-in-Education program

AIR Jennifer Grimyser working with Kingston High School students in WSW’s silkscreen studio.

This opportunity is for artists with teaching experience and knowledge of intaglio, silkscreen, or hand papermaking who are interested in creating their own work while also working with local public school students.

Women’s Studio Workshop’s Art-In-Education Program, Hands-On Art (HOA), is a collaboration with the Kingston City School District and is a model for arts education. HOA provides a high quality arts experience by bringing students to a professional artists’ workspace to spend concentrated time learning printmaking, papermaking, and book arts.

Spring Art-in-Education Workspace Residency Requirements:  Must have teaching experience and knowledge in one of the studio areas: silkscreen, etching, or papermaking. The Residency is five weeks, during which artists teach two days per week for three weeks and work in the schools for two sessions. In exchange, residents receive housing and access to the studio of their choice during non-HOA sessions. Spring Art-in-Education Workspace Residency artists work with elementary and/or middle school students.

Fall Art-in-Education Workspace Residency Requirements:  Must have teaching experience and knowledge in one of the studio areas: silkscreen, papermaking, or etching. Artists teach one day per week for four weeks and pay $300 for a four week Workspace Residency. In exchange they receive access to the studio of their choice, during non-HOA sessions. Fall Art-in-Education Workspace Residency artists work with high school students.
