Children’s Museum of the Arts (CMA) is pleased to announce the inaugural CMA Artist-Educator Residency, a new residency that invites four individuals each year to design, implement, and reflect on the efficacy of arts education through intensive studio, community-based, and online exposure. Spearheaded by Executive Director Seth Cameron and overseen by Producer Tommy Coleman, this initiative underscores CMA’s renewed focus on arts education by shifting away from the traditional museum model towards an experimental, artist-centered approach.
At CMA, we believe that all children are artists and like their adult counterparts, it’s in the studio that they develop new ways of seeing, experiencing, and responding to the world. Artist-Educators in Residence will be actively involved in co-research, co-inquiry, and co-reflection with children artists for the betterment of arts education at large. Residents will engage in all aspects of the studio and community, as well as in the development and implementation of their respective experimental curriculum.
