Mobile Residency Project

A five-day artist residency

Working with up to 250 participants

Creating a permanent piece of kinetic public art for your school. 

Prior to the residency:

Kevin connects with the principal and/or art teacher to discuss placement and size of the mobile(s). With the support of the art and/or classroom teacher(s), students do drawings of their ideas for the sculpture. Kevin then creates a model, inspired by the students’ drawings, of the mobile and shares it with the students on the first day of...
 

“Kevin Reese is far more than an artist.  He is a master motivator and a patient and respectful educator. I wholeheartedly recommend this residency to any organization.”

"Kevin has a rare quality- big art ideas and the organizational skills to boot! Thank you for everything! One of my favorite weeks ever and definitely my favorite art residency!"


Andrea Sauer, Art Teacher
Emmorton Elementary

 

The residency:

Over a five-day period, the students help Kevin measure, draw out, sand, paint and balance the mobile.  The students decide together what colors to use and how those colors will be applied to the mobile.  On the final day, the mobile is installed and unveiled for the entire school community.
