Request a Grant Writer

Opportunity for USA, Canada, and International artists to participate in a resident artist program in New York State. Eligible artists will teach students a variety of artistic techniques. The program provides artists with accommodations as well as assistance from studio staff. Preference is given to artists who can work full-time over one residency period.

The Art-in-Education (AIE) Workspace Residency is for artists interested in working with local school students while creating their own work in WSW’s supportive and immersive environment. This is an opportunity for artists with a range of teaching experience, from seasoned teachers and professors, to those with minimal experience and an interest in gaining skills and knowledge.

Resident artists must be able to teach intaglio, silkscreen, or hand papermaking, and are welcome to complete their personal work in any of WSW’s studios: intaglio, letterpress, papermaking, screenprinting, darkroom photography, or ceramics. All artists receive a thorough studio orientation and are expected to work independently, though studio staff is available to provide assistance. Deep technical assistance can be arranged for an additional fee. Artists must provide their own materials, some of which can be purchased from WSW. The goal is to provide artists with the assistance necessary to complete a high-quality project in a timely fashion. 

Spring residency: During a five-week residency, artists teach fourth and/or eighth graders in WSW’s studios two days/week for three weeks and visit the students twice in school. In exchange for teaching, residents receive 24/7 studio access during non-AIE sessions and on-campus housing.

Fall residency: During a four-week residency, artists teach high school students in WSW’s studios one day/week and visit the students in school at least once.

As of 2019, all workspace residencies are fully subsidized! This means that while artists are still responsible for their own travel, materials, meals, and other personal incidentals while in residence, WSW provides housing and studio space at no cost. Artists working in any of the studios have access to the digital resources in the studio with assistance from a trained staff person. Additional resources are available through Women's Studio Workshop's relationship with the SUNY New Paltz Digital Fabrication Lab, and can be arranged on a case-by-case basis.

Remote teaching may be required for the 2021-2022 academic school year. Artists awarded this residency will have studio and housing provided during the residency period, but the teaching components may be conducted virtually.
