Art-in-Ed Workspace Residency
The Art-in-Ed Workspace Residency is a four- to five-week opportunity for artists with teaching experience; knowledge of intaglio, silkscreen, or hand papermaking; and an interest in creating their own work while also working with local school students. Artists can work on their own projects in any of our studio disciplines.
Our Art-in-Education (AIE) program is a model for arts education and operates in conjunction with the Kingston City School District. AIE provides a high quality arts experience by bringing students to a professional artist’s workspace and giving them concentrated time to learn printmaking, papermaking, and book arts.
During a five-week residency, artists teach in WSW’s studios two days/week for three weeks and visit the students twice in school. In exchange for teaching elementary and/or middle school students, residents receive onsite housing and 24/7 studio access during non-AIE sessions. Spring residents do not have to pay a studio fee, but are expected to pay for their own materials.
During a four-week residency, artists teach high school students in WSW’s studios one day/week. Fall residents pay $100/week for each week of their residency residency, in exchange for onsite housing and 24/7 studio access during non-AIE sessions.
