Santa Fe is blessed with a significant number of working professional visual artists. The Visiting Artist Program brings these professionals into the classroom where they share their skills and talents with Santa Fe Public Schools (SFPS) elementary school students. They create their own lesson plans, provide materials and prototypes, and teach students with hands-on artmaking.
This program connects students to their local art community, introduces them to a variety of techniques, and exposes them to potential careers in art.
