The Visiting Guest Artist is expected to attend concurrently running courses and workshops at the Scuola on a biweekly basis. The artist’s role in the classroom is to act as a mentor, providing further knowledge, input, and guidance to participating students. This enables the Guest Artist to become further integrated into the fabric of the Scuola’s community, while fostering dialogue in a dynamic studio setting among artists both local and international. The position allows for the freedom and time to create new work in the studio.
