June 25–July 1, 2017
Down deep you're an artist. You've been busy building lesson plans, grading projects, managing classrooms, meeting state guidelines, and nurturing young imaginations—and now it's time to tend to your own creative desires.
Applications are due by May 1, 2017.
Educator-artists from a broad range of disciplines live, work, and collaborate to push the boundaries of their practices. Faculty mentors from the School of Art and Design guide resident artists through critiques, offer challenges, make presentations, provide demonstrations, and engage in one-on-one sessions. A public exhibition of individual and collaborative works culminates the experience.
All participants earn three total continuing education units: one for morning critiques and two for afternoon studio time with mentors.
Space is limited. The following selection criteria are taken into consideration:
- Full-time status at a public or private K-12 school
- Passion for the proposed residency project
- Compatibility with a faculty mentor
Application fee: $50 (nonrefundable)
Program fee: $500 (includes mentorship, shared studio space, five days/six nights in a single room, and meals)
All art supplies are the responsibility of each artist.
1. Prepare your supporting material, which can be cut and pasted into the application or attached as documents:
- A brief description of your proposed residency project that outlines the ideas or concepts you will be exploring, the materials you’ll need, and any tools and facilities that your project requires
- A brief biography with your current place of residence, a list of previous works, an indication of the media you specialize in, and links to any online galleries
2. Submit the online application with $50 application fee by May 1, 2017. (Applicants will be admitted on a rolling basis until May 1. Once the program is full, a waiting list will be started. Early application is strongly recommended.)
3. Pay the program fee no later than June 1, 2017.
Available micro-residency areas: all paint media, drawing media, mixed media, metal, digital media, photography, ink (printmaking), and clay. Contact us before applying if your area of interest falls elsewhere. We may be able to accommodate your preference.
