VSA Idaho Artist in Residence Program

VSA Idaho's Creative Access programs have been placing teaching artists in public schools statewide for residencies in visual, performing and literary arts for 15 years. Residency sites include grades pre-K–12 as well as community centers including IPUL's Creative Access Art Center. Residencies can occur in general or special education classroom and are tailored to meet the needs of students as well as accommodate teaching schedules. Residencies are a minimum of 10 hours and our teaching artists are all experienced in teaching arts with special populations.

Under a Contract with the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, and a contract with the State Department of Education, artists provide high quality art programs to hundreds of students with disabilities throughout the state of Idaho.

VSA Idaho, The State Organization on Arts and Disability, provides arts and education opportunities for people with disabilities and increases access to the arts for all. VSA's mission is empowering and engaging people with disabilities in the creative process through opportunities which are fully inclusive, educational and participatory.

VSA Idaho is member of the VSA Affiliate Network, a program of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. VSA is an international organization founded by Ambassador Jean Kennedy Smith in 1974. 

Further funding for IPUL’s 2014-2015 Creative Access Artist in Residence Program is made possible by the Idaho Commission on the Arts, the National Endowment for the Arts, The Kennedy Center, and the Idaho State Department of Education.
