Artist Residency

Every year the Parrish Art Museum invites over 350 students to participate in the Artist Residency, a series of museum-based workshops facilitated by exhibiting artists. Supporting the Museum’s commitment to creating dynamic experiences for students, the residency fosters deeper connections with visual art and living artists through object-based learning and art making.
