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 intellectual 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 intellectual disabilities as a volunteer or visiting artist.
