Green Street-to-GO! Artist Residencies

Residency
Green Street will not be taking on any residencies beyond December 31, 2017.

Our “Green Street To-Go!” artist residency program is a versatile, traveling program whereby we can send a highly talented teaching artist to your site to lead an arts or cultural workshop of your choice.   We offer residency programs in wide range of art forms and topics such as African Drumming and Dancing, Creative Movement, Hip Hop, Yoga, Capoeira, Tai Chi, Creative Writing, all sorts of Visual Arts.

These residency programs can be tailored to your specific group’s age and needs.  We have specialized programs for children, teens, adults, seniors, and even special needs clients.  Some of our programs are designed to work best as one-time workshops, others work well when delivered in a series, or on an on-going basis where the participants’ skills can be challenged and developed.  

The cost of each artist residency varies, but each has a base rate of $150 per hour, per teaching artist.  There is a one-hour minimum fee for any residency.  Some residencies require additional cost for supplies (such as are needed for visual arts classes) or for teaching artists’ travel expenses.
