Description
The DoSeum's Artist in Residence (AIR) is a program that partners with professional mid-career artists who revel in the challenges of creating socially engaged works of art that allow children and their families exposure to Contemporary Art. By interacting with the artist’s work, children will appreciate both the artistic process and its products, connecting them through this art experience with STEM and Literacy themes. 

This year's artists are Amada Miller and Mark Menjivar. During these workshops, children will be engaging in different activities relating to the exhibit's themes of space and birds. Community partners will also take part in the workshops.
