General residencies information

  • The residencies are usually 2-4 sessions for each class, with each session being 45 minutes - 1 hour long.

  • An artist is often able to fit 3 or less often, 4 sessions into a day with a short break

in between each session.

  • The classroom teacher will be present for all the sessions

  • Residencies will not start before 9 am and the last one will finish by 3 pm at the latest.

  • There will be a break in the middle of the day when the children are at lunch and recess, so often there will be 2 sessions in the morning, followed by a break of an hour or more and then one or possibly 2 sessions in the afternoon.
