Thinking you need a short break from the classroom? How about applying to a residency? One right here in Oregon....
There’s never been a better opportunity to give yourself the time and space to focus on a new body of work, immerse yourself in a particular technique or connect with a dynamic creative community.
The junior residency is a sixteen-week fellowship program open to outstanding emerging artists who wish to immerse themselves in the development of a body of work within a residency context. In fall semester 2010, one appointment will be made in book arts/printmaking and the second in fibers. In spring semester 2011, one appointment will be made in ceramics and the second in drawing/painting.
The senior residency is a six-week summer fellowship program designed to encourage outstanding mid-career artists to take time away from their teaching or studio careers to pursue a focused project in a stimulating art environment. For the 2011 senior residency, three appointments will be made.
The OCAC Artist-in-Residence program is supported by the Collins Foundation. For details including residency dates, stipend information and qualifications, download the junior and senior residency applications at http://www.ocac.edu/#/community-programs/artist-in-residence/. All application materials must be received by March 1, 2010.
