The HRM Teaching Artists-in-Residence and Teaching Scientists-in-Residence are outside professionals who work with the Museum to create programs that enhance the historic, artistic, or literary themes of the current exhibitions or the Museum’s permanent collections. They also mentor and train Junior Docents who facilitate weekly Family Studio workshops.
