Tuesday April 18

12:00 PM  –  1:00 PM

The Kirk Newman Art School Post-Baccalaureate Program is in its sixth year. The nine-month residency is designed for aspiring artists who want to grow and strengthen their art practice in a supportive community, with access to professional studio facilities and guidance. At each of these ARTbreaks, KIA guests will hear from the KNAS residents about their experiences and artistic pursuits. 

Zan Knecht’s sculptures invite people to think and feel their part in the landscape, and to consider how they may move purposefully through the world. Originally from Flint, MI, Zan earned her PhD in Women's Health from the University of Michigan. Kalamazoo native Zoë Valette is a trained fashion designer who uses a variety of media such as paper, plastic, clay, and found items to create garments that exist somewhere between sculptural and wearable. Printmaking resident Hana Holmgren is a graduate student in English at Arcadia University. Most of her focus lies in typesetting and historical methods of printing.
