Artist in Residence
Kensington Parkwood is proud to have a wonderful Artist in Residence program every year for our learners. We strive to involve the arts within our students' learning.

What is an Artist-in-Residence?
Artist-in-Residence are also a part of the program. The residencies vary in art form and provide opportunities for students to interact with real poets, artists, musicians, storytellers, dancers, etc. making the arts come alive. In many cases, permanent art installations have been added to the school, which enhance the environment for students, staff, and the community. Students have a greater appreciation for the arts because they are involved in the creation of these permanent works in addition to participating in the arts in their daily lessons.
Thank you to our PTA for the support of this program!
