Artist & Writer in Residence

Artist & Writer in Residence (A&WiR) is the Art Academy of Cincinnati’s free outreach and curriculum enrichment program that empowers educators and enhances the learning environment for students in grades 7-12. Students in the A&WiR program are challenged to problem-solve through visual communication methods and develop their learning, focusing on the 21st Century skills of creativity, collaboration, and critical thinking. 

Through sustained engagement with local and regional Middle and High Schools, our Teaching Artist & Writers staff enhances in-school studies in art, writing, foreign language, and social studies classes. Each educator that joins the A&WiR program is provided the materials, curricular support, and partnership to create a transformational experience with a partnering Teaching Artist & Writer from the AAC.
