ArtStart’s artist-in-residence program focuses on unlocking each individual’s creative artist within. You can count on an ArtStart artist to spark creativity, engage students in the artistic process, and deepen learning as they create or perform.
Founded in 1988, the mission of ArtStart is to inspire artistic creativity and illuminate the connections among people, ideas and the environment through engaging artists, children, families, and communities in quality arts education experiences. Our motto is “reusing and re-imagining our community.”
The artists who are on our roster hold values similar to the organization, that is the commitment to inspiring creativity through quality arts experiences. Roster artists value both process and product in the act of creating a work. They encourage exploration and refinement of ideas, as well as careful craftsmanship.
The ArtStart roster of artists for our summer programming includes both artists and arts educators who represent diverse cultural backgrounds and art forms. All have a deep commitment to the arts and nurturing each person’s creative artist within. ArtStart artists and staff cordially invite you to start your summer with the arts!
