We are Sorensen Magnet School of the Arts and Humanities, an elementary school grades K-5th located in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. Through friends, family, community donations, and grant funding from Idaho  Commission on the Arts to Magnet funding, we have the unique opportunity to bring Artists in Residence into our community to enrich our student’s education.

An Artist-in-Residence spends one to two weeks engaging Kindergarten through 5th grade by bringing the participants an artist’s experience, insights, and traditions. The residency will offer a catalyst for learning and culminate in a final product or performance for the school community. We are looking for projects that provide Artistic Enrichment and facilitate experiences with Community, History, Literature, or Culture.

These are paid 1-2 week residencies at $1500/week working with grades K-5. They are for ANY medium from Film to Culinary to Performing Arts to Music to Visual Arts. We are really looking for a project that incorporates both the Arts & Humanities with a focus on Culture, History, and Community. Located in downtown Coeur d’Alene, we do have stipends for Travel and Housing.
