K-12 On-site Studio Programs
The On-site Studio program extends art-making activities that take place through the Apprentice Training Programs and its Artist-in-Residence program to the school environment. A FWM-trained teaching artist works with a class of school students (K-12) and their teacher, meeting once each week over a period of six weeks, to facilitate a collectively designed hand screen-printed fabric. Two of these meetings will take place at FWM, the first focusing on screen-printed repeat design and exploring FWM's current exhibition and the final visit to print the students' collaborative design with assistance from the teaching artist. The finished project will be a 15-yard hand screen-print that derives from the schools' curricula and is designed by students. When possible, FWM provides bus grants to defray the cost of schools' transportation to the Museum. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org
