We draw on volunteers, artists, and arts educators and give them unique access to our inclusive arts facilitation techniques. 

Our Artists-In-Residence lead classes or workshops with people who have developmental disabilities and support people in the arts through educational methodologies. Drawn from a pool of advanced volunteers, visiting artists, and local arts educators, Artists In Residence gain unique access to our inclusive arts facilitation techniques, opportunities to mentor people with disabilities or barriers, and a chance to share their expertise.

Three years of experience working in education or the arts and one year experience working with people with developmental disabilities as a volunteer or visiting artist.
