Visiting Scholars & Artists @ The Thacher School, Ojai, California
March 24 – April 2, 2016
The learning experience at Thacher has never been confined to the classroom. This is especially evident in the rich assortment of thinkers, doers, and performers who are regularly tossed into the academic mix.
All year long, the campus welcomes visiting scholars, artists in residence, and other guests who share their special expertise. Some become members of the campus community for extended periods of time, others are here only briefly to deliver lectures or meet with students.
Visiting Scholars and Artists
Through the generosity of two former Thacher parents, in 2006 the School established the Anacapa Fellowship. The program seeks to attract luminaries in a variety of fields: college professors on sabbatical and other scholars of established reputation; writers who also teach; painters, sculptors, musicians, and others. The Anacapa House (pictured above) provides fellows with comfortable space for informal gatherings with students and faculty.
