Each year, the Skirball offers an in-school residency program designed to transform students from observers of art and culture into creators of their own powerful works, igniting their self-confidence and imaginations. Students and teachers work intensively with a teaching artist and Skirball educators to learn basic techniques in one or more creative disciplines, culminating in a professionally produced, student-created program at the students’ school and at the Skirball Cultural Center.
IN-SCHOOL RESIDENCY FOR 2014–2015
Light & Noir in Los Angeles
Presented in conjunction with the Skirball exhibitions Light & Noir: Exiles and Émigrés in Hollywood, 1933–1950 and The Noir Effect, this high school residency program explores the contemporary relevance of the noir sensibility in Los Angeles. Through writing, photography, and film, students embark on a six-week investigation of self-identity filtered through the lens of Los Angeles, and work with a professional teaching artist to create original, collaborative works that will be presented at their school site and at the Skirball.
The deadline to apply for this residency has now passed.
