Artist in Residency & Teen Bridge Program

Each year, a Boston-based artist engages across the Eliot School’s programs to create work around a chosen theme. Teen Bridge participants support the artist as Fellows during an intensive process of collaborative design, art making and community engagement.

Teen Bridge and Artist-in-Residence programs are generously supported by: BPS Arts Expansion Fund EdVestors, The Linde Family Foundation, National Endowment for the Arts, Joe Kalt & Judy Gans Family Foundation, Maureen and David Moses Family, City of Boston Department of Youth Engagement & Employment, and Boston Private Industry Council.


Haitian American artist and educator Chanel Thervil is be the 2021 resident artist. Her project, Feel the Flow, guided teen fellows on an investigation of the body as a vessel in three parts. Feel the Flow  explores adornment—how we decorate our vessels with a focus on Aesthetics/Appearance; then Movement—how our vessels move with an emphasis on the mechanics of the body and how we move through the world; and finally Resilience—how we feel inside our vessels with a focus on how internal feelings correlate with the external. Each week, she explored the themes via drawing, collage, and fibers. The residency culminates with the exhibition of mixed media banners that represent each of the teen fellows.
