Artist in Residence


Jeff is now booking artist in residence visits and workshops for the 2012 school year.


NEW! Jeff was commissioned to create murals for both the Oak Trace Elementary School in Westfield, Indiana and the town of Chesterton, Indiana. Both murals will be dedicated in May, 2011. More info on the Upcoming Shows page. 


Jeff is passionate about partnering with school communities to encourage creativity. He works with ages K - 12, college students and adults to provide a motivational and exciting experience for students to learn in a non-traditional way. Jeff's Artist in Residence sessions expose students to a professional artist, encouraging them to consider future career opportunities. Jeff customizes each Artist in Residence session so that outcomes closely match expectations. Following are reactions from administrators with the West Lafayette School Corporation when Jeff finished an Artist in Residence session:



"Jeff Hagen has an indescribable quality much in the manner of the pied piper. You want to follow him into his workshop. You want to draw and imagine and write. He is the person you have been waiting for to come into your school or organization and light a flame of creativity. We are working on getting him to come back for longer periods of time for some hands on experience.......with all of us."

Sally Miller, Ph.D.

Principal, Happy Hollow School

"Jeff Hagen has many unique gifts that make him a wonderful talent to work with people of all ages and abilities. His understanding of art, creativity and learning make his presentations most interesting and effective at all age levels. He gets the job done and goes beyond the standard expectations."

Larry D. Allen
