CJC Artist-In-Residence

The CJC Artist-in-Residence Endowment was established in 1998 and endowed by the Caplan Family Foundation, Inc. of Baltimore and Catherine R. Caplan, 1978 of New York in memory of her father, the late Caswell J. Caplan.  The endowment provides special programming for the arts at Roland Park Country School on a rotating basis between the performing and visual arts.

Through the CJC Artist-in-Residence Program, RPCS has brought leading visual and performing artists to campus to work with students of all ages. Their creations bring energy and contribute to an atmosphere of playful invention in the School.
