More about our school…

Webb School is a K-12 independent day school of about 1100 students located in Knoxville, Tennessee.  We have been hosting two visiting visual artists a year for over ten years.  Visitors arrive in October and February and spend five weeks on campus.  During their stay artists work half of each day on their own work and spend the other half of each day interacting formally with students in art classes.  These interactions are collaboratively planned with one of the six visual arts teachers on campus:  one Lower School teacher; two Middle School teachers; and three Upper School teachers.  Visitors are given part of a classroom space to call their own to work in.  We have a fairly well equipped digital lab, wood shop, dark room, kilns, and print presses for our visitors to use.  Visitors have 24 access to their work spaces, as well as access to work out facilities and library privileges.  Visitors are housed in an extended stay hotel about two miles from campus.  Lunch is provided on school days.  Visitors travel expenses are provided for and visitors receive a $3900 stipend for their five week stay.
