A dynamic opportunity for visiting artists and visual art students
Recognizing that a diversity of viewpoints and disciplines is essential to a dynamic arts education, the Visual Arts program has an Artist-in-Residence program designed to bring practicing, professional artists to Prescott College. The program invites an artist to campus to teach master class in his or her field during a block session, as well exhibit their work in the gallery and conduct a public artist lecture and weekend community workshop.
