Are you trying to finish writing that book, play, or composition? Are you wishing to explore a new approach in your art or music? Do you need a new vista? If you are a professional working in the arts — even as a secondary pursuit — we encourage you to apply for this opportunity. It offers you a precious space for progress, and it offers everyone else the enrichment of seeing professional creatives at work.
Think of it! A week just to explore, to ponder, away from the cares of everyday life. A whole week just for you — working undistracted, uninterrupted. Get invigorated by productivity, and enjoy fellowship with like-minded creative people in the idyllic and inspiring setting of Camp.
As an Artist-in-Residence (AIR), you will have 5 full days to work on your own project. You will also have the opportunity to share some aspect of your work with the whole group, perhaps in an evening presentation or discussion. And if you wish, you can offer a mini-workshop to interested students during a free period in the day’s schedule. There is an additional day off for everyone in the middle of the week to use as you choose — working, sightseeing, or enjoying Camp.
The AIR fee, given in the Application link below, includes cabin and meals, a designated workspace, freedom to roam and work anywhere else that suits you, and use of the camp amenities such as kayaks, swimming beach, etc. For an additional fee, you may enroll in a half-day course for 5 days.
There are typically two AIRs accepted into the program. The application deadline is June 1 with a notification date of June 15. If you’d like to be considered, please apply by contacting Deb Hensley, the Creative Arts Director at firstname.lastname@example.org
What a difference a week can make!
