Thanks to the generosity of our community at the 2014 Silver Gala, KCS welcomed our first Artists-in-Residence during the 2014-2015 school year. Since then, we have invited a different Artist-in-Residence to come and work at KCS each year.
The Artist-in-Residence program allows for students to work side-by-side with professional artists. These artists bring new experiences to our school, and provide a creative energy and unique perspective that enhances our existing art curriculum.
Through this exciting program, our students are given the chance to explore the creative techniques and processes of a diverse range of art disciplines, while also developing a deeper appreciation for culture, the arts, and local artists.
But if you ask the kids, they’ll just tell you the best part is getting to work with a “real artist”! Apparently that’s pretty cool.
