The Visiting Artists Program was created in 1991 to provide students with direct personal contact with practicing professional artists, to help foster relationships with the broader arts community, and to bring a breadth of professional art expertise and artists into the school. This program is important because it brings national and prominent local artists and scholars into DSA classrooms to teach specific art techniques, provide external critique of student work, and gives students the unique opportunity to work with a professional in their art and envision a range of career possibilities. The DSA Visiting Artists Program is a signature offering and an invaluable resource for all DSA students.
The DSA SOS (Support Our Students) Fund was established in the fall of 2014 to ensure that all DSA students experience success and are not limited by financial resources. This fund provides assistance with DSA-related expenses such as lessons, art supplies, performance attire, tutoring, and more.Learn more!
