Gratiot-Isabella County Affiliate

MiAA Gratiot Isabella Affiliate Logo

The MiAA Gratiot-Isabella affiliate services the center of the state and is co-chaired by Diane Clise (Gratiot) and Barbara Taylor (Isabella). The committee works with the home office to find support for and to service our artist-in-residence programs for special education students in the Gratiot Isabella ISD school-based programs in the region’s school districts, as well as to identify and train artists to work in these programs.

Our Artist-in-Residence programs in the regional from the 2019-2020 school year have now been completed. The programs were cancelled in the spring due to the pandemic and resumed virtually this fall. Visual artist, Barbara Taylor worked with special education students at Kinney, Westgate and Alma High School. Below are samples of their outstanding artwork!
