ARTISTS-IN-RESIDENCE PROGRAMS

For well over a decade, Artscope has been proud to offer local schools an artist-in-residence, providing much-needed access to arts education for students who may not otherwise benefit from the creative and life skills that are developed through
art-making.

 

In the 2019-2020 school year, Artscope is partnering again with St. Francis Cabrini School, where Emily Hemeyer teaches art classes to students in grades K-8, and Marian Middle School, where Sarah Paulsen teaches art in this all-girls middle school.

In Spring 2020 we are starting residencies with Kairos Academy and St. Cecilia School and academy. 

If you are interested in embedding one of Artscope’s skilled, professional teaching artists in your school to provide high-quality arts learning to your students, please call us or contact info@artscopestl.org We’d love to start a conversation with you.

PROGRAMS FOR SCHOOL AND COMMUNITY ORGANIZATIONS
