Imagine the Possibilities
The program began in 1996 with the idea of having an artist spend the day on campus and visit classes in the Lower, Middle, and Upper School.
Now, twenty-one years later, the program has doubled in size and scope, with multiple artists spending two days each on campus, while engaging in division assembly presentations, classroom workshops, and autographing sessions.
Each year, Program Coordinator Bev Gallagher matches up teachers and artists in a variety of ways to best enhance the experience for the entire community. The artists are chosen up to a year in advance, giving the teachers a chance to build curriculum around their visits.
Ms. Gallagher notes, “Each year I get to dream again and imagine ways to inspire our community. I feel honored and privileged to have worked on this program for all these years. What started out as a one-year program has truly grown into something amazing. My colleagues find remarkable ways to use the artists and their talents, allowing for spectacular visits.”
