About This Program
Embroidery Across the Curriculum
Embroidery has connections across history and cultures. The artist will work with teachers to design an arts-integrated project focused on their needs. Students will learn basic embroidery techniques, geared to the grade level. They will design and create their own embroidered illustrations on muslin or felt. The final product can be an installation or individual works of art.
Residencies range in price, from $2,000 and up, but we can use your available budget and ‘work backward’ to create a cost-effective residency for your school. We may be able to assist you in securing grant and funding opportunities.
Residencies are tailored to your needs but usually include:
• A kick-off assembly (performing arts only)
• A required orientation meeting and planning session
• A set of workshops for classes of up to 25 students each
• A student culminating or sharing event
• An evaluation meeting
