Artists in the Schools

Arts Integration Residencies

Each of LBC’s Arts Integration Residencies brings an artist into the classroom to lead students through six interactive sessions, combining an art form and another academic content area, to dive deeper into learning. Residencies start at $475, and scholarships are available!

Virtual options are available! Contact us for more information.
