About the NHS Artist in Residency Program


The Sheboygan North High School Artist in Residence (NHS AiR) Program started in the fall of  2014. Artists have collaborated with North High staff and students through various ways by  implementing their love for art into other content areas. Art involves a variety of skills ranging from critical thinking to production, communication to responding, problem-solving to developing an artistic voice. This program is designed to expose, educate and engage the North High community to local and regional artists each semester during the current academic school year. Due to COVID-19, we have decided to offer in-person or virtual artist-in-residencies ranging from 9 weeks to 18 weeks.

The goals of the NHS Artist-in-Residence Program are:

  • to expand the experience of student in the field of the arts,
  • to foster creativity,
  • to enrich education through art education,
  • to present staff with new ideas and art-driven strategies.

To date we have hosted the following artists:
