Studio and Living space is combined in one private “classroom” which is approximately 950 square feet. Rent for a “classroom” will include all utilities and Wi-Fi. Artists will have access to private communal bathroom and laundry facilities as well as a communal cafeteria for preparing meals, sauna and gym.

The communal nature of this residency program is designed for collaborations and the promotion of shared ideas and experiences. Artists will be asked to give a demonstration or teach in some capacity as a volunteer 1-2 hours a week with shared cleaning responsibilities of communal living spaces. Additional paid teaching opportunities will be available on a case-by-case basis. This residency is designed to give artists practical experience that will enhance their careers in a variety of ways. Whether teaching classes, giving presentations or exchanging ideas with the public, sharing our talents with others is the core of this residency program.
