Artist in Residence

The CCC's Artist in Residence Program is generously supported by grants from:  

About the Program: The Artist in Residence Program is a month-long opportunity for community members to meet and interact with local fine artists. It is a chance for adults and children alike to see an artist at work, watch demonstrations and talk to those artisans about their art, processes and inspirations. It is also an opportunity for local artists to network with the public, and to expand awareness about the arts in general and the work they specifically do. If you would like to learn more about the Artist in Residence program or are interested in serving as the CCC’s Artist in Residence for a one-month span, please contact Arts Education and Exhibits Manager, Jeanette Gabrys at

The Artist in Residence Program and Talent Incubator is made possible through the Greater Milwaukee Foundation's Mary L. Nohl Fund, Evan & Marion Helfaer Foundation and the Townsend Foundation.

A native from Chile, Julia Nawrot earned a full scholarship at Escuela Experimental de Educación Artística, a boarding school of the Arts at the age of 12 in Santiago. She participated in art shows since she was 13 years old, drawing and painting portraits, nature, doing botanical illustrations, and using a variety of media such as xylography, ink, charcoal, watercolor, acrylics, and oil. While teaching ESL at Lincoln Middle School of the Arts in Milwaukee, she incorporated art, and Latin and Greek roots in the ESL curriculum, so students created wonderful illustrations of sentences using words derived from these roots. Now retired, she is currently an active member of CCC, CAG, and CAM. Her paintings are currently displayed in the Main Street Gallery, Washington Inn, Schroeder Guest House, Cedarburg Senior Center, and at Cedarburg Art Museum gift shop.
