Resident Art Program

An important part of select Artisan communities is the engaging and stimulating art sessions for Artisan residents, led by our Artist-in-Residence. At art sessions, not only is amazing artwork created and confidence gained, but stories are told and memories are shared.

Fish! Fantastic visuals, wonderful memories, and lots of laughter - July 2017

There are so many stories that came forth when Artisan Resident Artist Amy introduced the topic of fish, fishing, boats, and fishing holes. There were many memories that our residents shared and some terrific fishing tales!

Laugher, Memories, Flowers, and Landscapes: June 2017

Our Artisan Resident Artist, Amy, is able to find inspiration for art sessions in so many ways. She recently discovered a field of daisies blooming in her garden with a few poppies ready to pop, which then turned into art inspiration at some recent sessions.

Glorious blooms and blossom - sure signs of spring and summer May 2017

Close your eyes and think of the visions of what is blooming right now all across the state of Wisconsin - this theme is always a favorite of Artisan artists when the come to art sessions at this time of year. Visions of garden, lilacs, tulips, and violets, plus bleeding hearts and lily-of-the-valley are brought to life by our resident artists.

Easter and fantastic spring-themed artwork - April 2017

Springtime and Easter are the popular topics for conversation at this time of year - the upcoming holiday gets lot of attention. Memories came forth from resident artists - such as of getting all dressed up and making up big baskets....wrapping presents, putting on special decorations....decorating eggs and then hiding them.

Longing for spring and warmer days ahead - March 2017

March is a time when many long for and look forward to the upcoming seasonal change - warm weather and spring cannot come quickly enough!  So during the March days filled with high anticipation, Artisan Resident Artist Amy expanded the resident Artists' exploration of spring and helped residents work on a variety of pieces, from individual flowers to spring landscapes.
