The Worcester Art Museum is offering a new approach to engagement with their collection: one-day residencies for artists of all ages and skill sets. Residents may draw, sketch, and photograph in the galleries, and also have access to the Museum's artist studios for their day of residency; by the end of the day they may have a finished artwork that WAM will share on their flickr page. The museum also encourages residents to invite family and friends to observe their residency.
More information on the One-Day Residency program is available at Worcester Magazine and on WAM's website. To view some of the works created thus far visit WAM's Flickr page.
