Current Artist Residency
In the Spring of 2015, two local artists worked with Prescott Elementary and their faculty in art and vocal music classes. Visual Artist Kate Marx worked with grades K-2 in art classes, focusing on landscapes, collages, and abstract art. Jazz Music Artist Jackie Allen worked with 5th Grade students in vocal music classes, focusing on blues and jazz music. These two artists worked with the children for 3-4 weeks at Prescott, bringing outside inspiration and new techniques to the minds of these eager students.

"Never undervalue the impact that even a casual or short-term connection can make in a young persons life." - Linda Robison, Prescott Elementary School
