OUCH! As one who makes (or attempts to make) her living as an AIR, I found
the previous posts quite painful. Please don't lump all AIR's into one you know, there are good teachers and bad in every school/subject.

When schools contact me for a residency, my first action is to contact the
teacher(s) most directly involved with my program. I tailor each and every
residency according to the needs of the students/school, and feedback is
essential to the success of my program(s). I provide an agenda/lesson plan
and request any suggestions, etc., to improve the proposed residency. In this
way, we're all on the same page.

The classroom teacher is the primary resource; anything I do is to support,
reinforce, and enhance. There can be great value in the AIR program; all
depends on the artist in question.
