Arts4All Florida provides teaching artists to lead art learning experiences in self-contained ESE or inclusive PreK-12 classrooms throughout the State of Florida. Residencies are tied directly to Florida Standards and increase the artistic skills and cognitive learning of students with disabilities as well as provide a venue for students to express themselves creatively in appropriate ways. Arts4All Florida provides a variety of residency options, including:
- Standard Residency: Eight one-hour sessions in visual art, music, movement/ dance, or drama.
- Modern Skills for Success Residency (ArtThread): Eight one-hour sessions using ArtThread, an interactive online gallery, and Splash, the integrated art-making tool designed for transition students and adults.
