2017 Golden Residents Group Shot

For two weeks this past summer, three educators attended the Golden Educators Residency. This program was created for educators whose students received recognition in the 2017 Scholastic Awards and who are working in the paint medium in their own art. During the residency, the educators participated in technical workshops, met with GOLDEN staff, and explored new ideas in their paintings. We checked in with the residents to see how the experience has impacted them as artists and as educators as they kick off a new school year.

The 2017 Golden Educator Residents arrived at the Sam & Adele Golden Foundation barn on July 20 to begin their two-week painting residency. During the residency, the artists will learn about new painting techniques and technology from GOLDEN staff, as well as spend time working on their own paintings. For the third year in a row, this residency has been offered to educators whose students received Scholastic Art & Writing Awards, and we are proud to partner with Golden Artist Colors and the Sam & Adele Golden Foundation to offer such an amazing opportunity to deserving educators.

We know how difficult it is for educators to find the time to work on their own creative projects in addition to teaching, grading, meeting with parents, and supervising school clubs, not to mention maintaining their personal lives. So as an extra show of support to the art educators who applied to the 2016 Golden Educators Residency, Golden Artist Colors generously presented the finalists with gift certificates worth $1,000 each for Golden products.

Earlier this year, we announced our first educator residency, made possible through a partnership with Golden Artist Colors and the Sam & Adele Golden Foundation. We invited teachers whose students, past or present, received a Scholastic Award to apply for this unique opportunity and we were astounded by the number and quality of the submissions! Educators from across the country sent in applications that were thoughtful, inspiring, and filled with outstanding artwork. Choosing the three teachers to participate in the residency was not an easy task, and we felt honored to have the chance to get to know so many of the teachers who help make the Scholastic Awards possible.
