BCA works with the The Integrated Arts Academy to provide artists residencies that integrate the arts into multi-disciplinary learning. This spring, the residency program embarked on a school-wide project to celebrate our community’s vibrancy and diversity through portraiture and writing. Artist Michelle Saffran has been in-residence at the IAA since the fall of 2016 photographing nearly 200 families with the nearly 300 students at the IAA. The family portraits are accompanied by stories written by IAA students and will be on exhibition at Burlington's City Hall, as well as at local businesses within the Old North End, Barrio Bakery, Chubby Muffin, North End Studios, and Fletcher Free Library. 

 The IAA Family Portrait Project is a collaboration between IAA, Burlington City Arts (BCA) and the IAA PTO.
