Artist in Residence
The goal of the Artist in Residence program is to foster engagement between visitors/patrons of the Beaufort County Library and the various disciplines of our artistic community. The resident artist will be engaged in sharing and teaching their craft while using a designated space in the library. The Artist in Residence program gives artists, performers, authors and makers of all types and disciplines the ability to work freely in their own studio space while sharing their work and artistic process with the community and provide learning opportunities and programs for library customers.
