The Sugar Hill Children's Museum of Art & Storytelling hosts an annual artist in residence for artists who are committed to social engagement through their artistic practice and to working with the Museum’s primary audience of 3- to 8-year-old children. The program reflects our approach to engaging children by creating the means for them to connect with artists directly as they ask questions and discover their own artistic ideas. Children and adults will have opportunities to observe and explore the creative process with the artist as their guide. Learn more about our recent artist in residents below.
