Local Learning’s virtual residencies with National Endowment for the Arts National Heritage Fellows take us into the communities and lives of master folk artists. Explore each artist residency below when you click on their image.
In addition to introducing some of our nation’s renowned traditions and traditional artists, these residencies can inspire finding and telling the stories of local traditions and tradition bearers. Use the Local Learning Tools to research local learning in your community and develop local Folk Artist Profiles.
