ARTIST IN RESIDENCE PROGRAM, at Challis Elementary School
The Challis Arts Council in cooperation with the Challis School District sponsor an Idaho Artist’s visit to the Challis Elementary School for one week in January. In 2011, Joy Steiner, author of “P is for Potato” and storyteller visited our school through a grant from the Idaho Commission on the Arts Artist in Residency Program. Local sponsors, Thomsen Stephens Law Office and the Challis Messenger match grant funds for this important arts education program that is so important for our students.
