Kids-in-Residence is an exciting opportunity for young artists to engage deeply with the residency program. Students are in one group ages 5 - 8 year olds, with a maximum of 10 students in the class. Inspired by the work of Xawery Wolski, students are guided to create a range of art projects in dialogue with the body of work in exhibition.
