In addition to our Lead Faculty, a core part of Chautauqua Visual Arts is our Faculty & Staff who are nationally recognized and practicing artists who are faculty and administrators. Our Faculty and Staff have exceptional skills and teach technical classes that are open to everyone, including the participants of our residency program.
The members of our Faculty and Staff include the CVA Team who are also all practicing artists. They not only manage our program, but also facilitate acquisitions, curate and organize exhibitions, conduct tours, hold conversations with artists, mentor participants and provide further education about the visual arts to everyone.
