Faculty & Visiting Artists
The Chautauqua School of Art residency program is composed of an esteemed group of faculty. All faculty teach in the most current, contemporary pedagogies, working closely with our School of Art participants, Chautauquans and members of the public.
Our Lead Faculty conduct weekly sessions and one-on-one conversations. Their pedagogy comes directly from their practices as outlined below.

We are very excited to announce our visiting artists who will be conducting studio visits, group conversations, demonstrations and workshops for the 2022 Season:
For the entire 7-week residency program, we are proud to host who are thought leaders, sharing their very different voices, paths of their own and of different artists, sound advice and connections to the artists-in-residence. Our professional development is not formalized; we believe there is no one way to be an artist. Therefore, we believe professional development is customized and nuanced. Here are our sage, generous thought-leaders who will be visiting in 2022, who are determined to empower artists to sustain their own creative lives:
Samiya BashirVisiting Artist, Professional Development July 3–9
