MND Visual Arts Class Selected for Artist in Residence Program

Mount Notre Dame’s Art Studio II class has been selected to participate in the Art Academy of Cincinnati’s Artist in Residence Program, an in-school outreach program for 7th-12th grade students.  Approximately 2,500 students from Southwest Ohio, Northern Kentucky and Southeast Indiana participate each school year.

Students will work with an assigned artist in residence from the Art Academy of Cincinnati for four weeks beginning in January. Students will be given a collaborative brainstorm project to spark inspiration and creativity and will be introduced to the core lesson plan they will use to create their Artist in Residence project.

“This is an amazing opportunity for our students,” notes MND Visual Arts Department Chairperson Mrs. Denise Scharf.  “MND’s Art Studio II class includes a mix of sophomores, juniors and seniors, several of whom are seriously considering visual arts as a career path. Working with an artist in residence will be an engaging and enriching experience.”
