Urban Bright Arts-In-Education Residency Programs
Art House’s award winning Urban Bright Arts-in-Education Program is an artist residency program that provides students with meaningful, hands-on arts opportunities and exposure to artists, methods, and materials to which they would otherwise not be exposed. The program aims to promote critical thinking, improve communication skills, and increase each student’s ability to work as part of a team.
Through grant funding, Art House is able to provide the Urban Bright residency programs to individual schools. Art House works with schools to tailor an artist residency appropriate for a specific grade and group of students. The Program Coordinator works collaboratively with teachers, principals, and artists to plan the residency, providing a qualified and professional artist, all supplies, and an agreed upon curriculum, that integrates applicable standards from the Ohio Department of Education.
