This hands-on class explores students personal artistic interests and will provide full access to our dye lab, screen printing facilities, sewing machines, looms, & more. Students will be able to draw inspiration from the 8 resident artists and designers' evolving work in fine arts, fashion design, and home textiles, and gain insight into the endless possibilities within the world of textiles.

Our Residency Program

Textiles for Tweens students draw inspiration from our very talented, dedicated Artists in Residence. For 9 months, 8 artists and designers work at TAC toward an exhibition, while going through a professional development program. Alongside such artists and designers, our tween students get to observe the professional creative process, develop their own critical dialogue, and receive mentorship.
