Program 2

Artist-In-Residence Program

The purpose of Around the Coyote's Artist-in-Residence program is to give the artist the use of a large, well-lit space to use as a studio for a month in the creation of a new and potentially non-market driven work of installation art. The residency is also designed to allow our gallery audience, including ATC members, students, and visitors to see work being designed, conceptualized and realized. We would also like to give our members a chance to meet with a professional artist, perhaps working in a different medium, in order to engage in discussion on technique and concepts.

Program 3

Free Art Classes for Kids

Around the Coyote is pleased to host a series of courses and a summer art camp for children between the ages of 6 and 12. We offer these neighborhood kids an opportunity for fun, exciting educational programs that nurture creativity, expand awareness of the arts, and build self-esteem. By the end of each course, students have completed several individual art projects and have enhanced their knowledge of the history of art while having fun in a positive, nurturing environment.
