AE OriginalsAdvantages of an Artist in Residence

Amy leads seminarBecause Amy stays on campus (or very nearby) until the completion of the mural, students have several weeks to meet, speak, and paint with the artist. Amy offers one or two workshops tailored to the needs of the school (art and activism, practical feminism, combining your passion and earning a living, etc.) for no additional cost. Students have the opportunity to watch the artist work. Artwork is then less a magical, finished product; it is an accessible and understandable process. Furthermore, Amy offers the campus valuable PR opportunities; she loves interviews and will set aside time for both college publications as well as local papers or radio stations. Your school and organization will receive attention and have the opportunity to give others information about your goals and politics.Amy E. Bartell with pre-school class visiting the Mural Project.
