The Folk School Resident Artists Rock!

resi_blogheader

Experts in their individual craft, the Folk School Resident Artists schedule classes, bring new instructors, keep the studios shipshape, and teach popular Folk School classes. With the arrival of the new catalog this month, now is the time to plan ahead and sign up for a class instructed by a Resident Artist. Carpe diem, as they fill quickly!

 

Many of the Resident Artists teach several classes throughout the new July 2013-June 2014 schedule. We’ve curated a list of some of our favorite classes and you can also view all the classes a Resident is teaching by click on their name. We love and appreciate our fabulous Resident Artists, and you will too!
