About Learning + New Works

The Learning + New Works (L+NW) department manages all of Guild Hall’s learning initiatives, including the Guild Hall Teen Arts Council, Student Art Festival, Talks & Lectures, and Artist Led Workshops. The department also supports the development of new works and emerging artists through its three residency programs: The Guild Hall William P. Rayner Artist-in-Residence program, Community Artist-in-Residence program, and The Guild Hall & Bel Canto Boot Camp Resident Artist series.


Guild Hall’s Learning + New Works programs are made possible through The Patti Kenner Arts Education Fellowship, Vital Projects Fund, the Glickberg/Abrahams S. Kutler Foundation, the Lewis B. and Dorothy Cullman Endowment Fund, and The Melville Straus Family Endowment. 

Additional support provided by Friends of Learning + New Works: Julie Raynor Gross, and Stephanie Joyce and Jim Vos
