The STAR Collaboration (Students, Teachers, Artists-in-Residence) invites artists from visual, literary, musical, and performing arts genres to join Eagle Hill for a semester of focused art work, and to come together with our students and teachers to facilitate novel learning opportunities.
The STAR residency program is open to artists at any stage of their careers—emerging artists, well-established artists, art teachers, and artists returning to former careers in the arts. STAR artists are educators at heart, who want to work with students while expanding the definition of what being an educator means; who are interested in novel, interdisciplinary educational approaches; and who thrive on collaboration with others.
We are excited to welcome our first STAR Artist of 2021, David Walsh. Mr. Walsh is a recent graduate of RISD and a visual artist who is excited to continue his multidisciplinary work (including printmaking, oil painting, drawing, papermaking, and 3D model making) during his time with Eagle Hill School. In his most recent work, he has been focusing on portraying and recontextualizing the emotional interactions of his subjects.
Mr. Walsh is looking forward to integrating into the Eagle Hill community and collaborating with many of the students at Eagle Hill.
EHS alumna Taylor Judge ’07 gives a personal look into the STAR Collaboration and the Eagle Hill arts experience, as she reflects on her return to Eagle Hill as a STAR artist.
