Visiting Artist Program
Throughout the school year, the visual arts faculty invite artists from a range of backgrounds and with a variety of styles to take up short-term residency in the creative environment provided by the Richmond Art Center. The Visiting Artist Program offers Loomis Chaffee students an experiential learning opportunity — observing and participating in the process of an artist creating his or her work. In doing so, the professional artists can explain their inspirations, share techniques, and provide mentoring for students.
Art exhibitions by Visual Art teachers Jennifer McCandless and Mark Zunino and Loomis Chaffee art students are on display in the Mercy, Barnes, and Wilde galleries through May 30.
