WAM One Day Artist Residencies


Create a work of art in the museum’s galleries!

Inspired by the Worcester Art Museum collection, we invite you to create a work-of-art-in-a-day in the museum’s galleries. This work will be shared by the museum on our work-of-art-in-a-day Flickr and Facebook sites.

We encourage all visitors to become one day residents.

While visiting, take a picture, draw, write, respond to the works on display with art. Send your photograph to katrinastacy@worcesterart.org.
