Mountain Arts Program (MAP) Residencies

The Mountain Arts Program (MAP) places artists from the western region of the state in schools for programs ranging from single day visits up to full week-long residencies (up to five groups of students).  Students are given a hands-on, sequential arts experience. Western Arts Agencies of North Carolina members (who are Arts Council Directors) review the roster of artists each year to maintain both educational and artistic quality and to add new artists to the roster as well. The current roster consists of over two dozen artists and encompasses everything from drama to pottery, creative writing to mask-making, visual art to music, photography to creative movement, and much more.
