What is Artist in Residence?  The Artist-in-Residence Program is a deep dive for Lyme School students into a visual, musical or movement experience or project. The PTO arranges for an artist in either the visual, musical, or movement fields to visit and work with students of all grades, K-8.

This hands-on program brings expertise from sources outside the school to engage all of our students for often a whole week. Past artists have included a mosaicist, an African drummer, a muralist, and many more.

This year's modality is MUSIC. Please let us know if you would like to serve on the committee that chooses that next AIR! Email us at
