BLAU-GOLD STUDIO TEACHING ARTIST FELLOWSHIP


The Blau-Gold Studio/ Teaching Fellowship (BGSTF) was initiated by a gift from the estate of the late Lonny Darwin, a supporter of education and the arts. The Fellowship, named for Ms. Darwin’s late mother, Emmy Blau- Gold, is designed to support an emerging artist for one year by providing free studio space and a monetary stipend.

The Blau-Gold Studio Teaching Fellowship provides free studio workspace to a teaching artist in exchange for being an integral part of Root Division’s Studios Program. In large part, the commitment involves teaching classes one to two afternoons per week at one of our Youth Education partner program sites. Working as a teaching-artist in residence for the full school year, the BGSTF plans a curriculum and develops a series of accessible, relevant, and fun projects for the students at a local school site.
