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.

Alex Menzor, painting resident, studied at Kalamazoo Valley Community College, where they excelled in their primary medium of digital art/illustration and acrylic painting. Western Michigan University graduate and painting resident Ellen Vandermyde focuses on painting and printmaking and hopes to continue growing and teaching in Kalamazoo. They will be joined by ceramics resident Yve Holtzclaw from Atlanta, Georgia. After her residency, she plans on attending a Masters of Fine Arts program.
