Women’s Studio Workshop: Art-in-Ed Artist’s Book Residency Grant

Deadline: November 15, 2012 (POSTMARK) & (ONGOING)

Art-in-Ed Artist’s Book Residency Grant
Women’s Studio Workshop

Rosendale, NY 12472

Each year WSW awards two grants for emerging artists to create a new artist’s book and teach young people through our studio-based Art-in-Education (AIE) program, Hands-on-Art. Generally AIE/Book Arts residents teach 1-2 days per week for 3-4 weeks in the studios, and also visit the students in their home school in shorter sessions before and after the series held at WSW.

For these residencies, WSW is especially interested in artists who come from different regions of the country and/or diverse cultural backgrounds. Each award includes a $400 per week stipend for up to ten weeks, and a $750 materials budget, housing, travel costs up to $250 within the Continental US, and unlimited studio access.

Generally, the first month of the residency is devoted to the production of a limited edition artist’s book. WSW staff will provide training when necessary, technical advice, and assistance with editioning. During the second half of the residency, the artist works with young people in the WSW studios. Studio space and equipment is reserved for AIE students during program hours. Artists may continue to work on their residency projects after students’ studio hours.

The residencies take place in October-December with high school students, and February-May with elementary school students. This grant is a two-step juried process. Artists interested in this opportunity submit materials to WSW, then WSW applies to other funders.

Notification Date: Applicants will be notified via email by March 1

Residency Length: 8-10 weeks
