Dance. Sing. Sew. Paint. Compose. Play. Draw. Shape. Photograph. Film. Imagine. Create.

For seven days each academic year, ten to fifteen artists from The Seattle School have 24-hour access to the building to create, explore, dialogue, and collaborate with one another in their artistic endeavors. The rhythm of each day is up to the artists to structure for themselves. Each evening, artists come together around the table for dinner and fellowship with one another and the evening’s host in order to provide time for conversation and rest during the creative process.

The Artist Residency is open to students, spouses/partners, and alumni of The Seattle School. In the term following the residency, artists display their work in the Community Gallery and have the opportunity to share both their work and their creative process during an Artist’s Reception held during the next trimester.

 

Each year, the Artist Residency Program’s participants create around a common theme.
