Student Programs

Artist in Residence

The Artist in Residence Program inspires creativity in our students through weeklong workshops with renowned artists working in many fields.
Students across one grade work with an artist on a single project, which is performed or exhibited for the entire community. The arts, whether music, visual arts, dance or theater, hold an important place in the lives of students at the Lycee Francais de New York. The Artist in Residence Program further supports our other classroom and co-curricular activities in the arts and plays an essential role in the mission of school.
