The Visiting Artist program at Dixon brings world-renowned artists to our scholars for two week-long focused sessions every four to six weeks. Our visiting artists have a variety of specializations ranging from jewelry making to performing arts. With these experiences comes the use of professional materials, which yields higher quality artwork, and exposes the scholars to the real-life experiences of working artists. The use of professional materials also offers our scholars the opportunity to see and explore a variety of mediums in which they may have a talent or interest. It’s an introduction to new techniques, vocabulary, and new genres via unique artists.
