This year is set to be one of our busiest yet for in-school artist residencies, with dozens of schools submitting artist residency requests within the first two weeks of school! During an in-school artist residency, professional visual and performing artists bring unique educational arts programming to your school, working with each classroom for 4 or more sessions. Students learn new skills and methods of expression, develop creative thinking and self confidence, and gain career insights.

Lane Arts Council’s teaching artists are already getting booked and busy for the upcoming year. Encourage your school to contact us right away to get high-quality arts programming on the calendar while artist availability lasts. Email Eric at with questions, view our artist programs on offer here, and complete requests using this form.
