Artist Residencies with Drystone Joe

Since 2004, I have been leading artist residencies in public & private K-12 schools as well as at colleges & universities. I work closely with teachers, administrators, other teaching artists, and parents in planning successful residencies. I readily match content area & state standards to the craft of drystone masonry, preparing detailed lesson plans for each day of a residency. Host schools usually gain a permanent stone landscape feature as part of a residency, or repair of existing stonework.
