The Kirk Newman Art School Post-Baccalaureate Program is in its sixth year. The nine-month residency is designed for aspiring artists who want to grow and strengthen their art practice in a supportive community, with access to professional studio facilities and guidance. At each of these ARTbreaks, KIA guests will hear from the KNAS residents about their experiences and artistic pursuits.
Ceramics resident Brendan Barnes graduated from Cleveland Institute of Arts and has a goal to continue showcasing his works in Kalamazoo and beyond. Guests will also hear from Rebecca West, a printmaking resident from Greenville, Indiana. She attended Indiana University Southwest and is hoping to pursue a Masters of Fine Arts program following the residency program.
The KIA is offering both in-person and virtual tickets to this ARTbreak. Please RSVP accordingly.
