GlassRoots is deeply committed to catalyzing full-bodied creative expression and deep learning. One powerful means to deeper impact is long-term partnerships and collaboration. In-school and off-site residencies are offered in a variety of topics, and are customizable for schools. Residencies may include multiple visits over several weeks, or single visits over several weeks; and may include one or more grades.
Our Program Director and Teaching Artists work with classroom teachers and curriculum leaders to ensure programs are tied to and support district goals, and include meaningful evaluation. Recent residencies include:
- Mosaic “Quilt”/Mosaic Murals
- Mosaic Garden Benches
- African Masks with Glass Tiles
- Visual Art Residency through Glass Art (includes mosaics, kilnforming & etching)
