Artists working in various printmaking techniques, photo-processes, book arts and digital media including sound/video production can apply to become an Artist-in-Residence at Kala Art Institute. Residency applications are accepted four times per year. Artists who apply for residency should be familiar with at least one of the media offered at Kala. Considerations for acceptance are conceptual creativity and technical knowledge. Kala encourages experimental uses of both traditional and new technologies, and their admixture.

Resident artists receive 24-hour access to the printmaking workshop and/or electronic media center; individual storage space; exhibition opportunities such as the Artists’ Annual show in the Kala Gallery and possible exposure on Kala’s website and in other exhibitions at Kala or outside exhibition spaces; and participation in a vital, international artistic community. Artists also receive a 20% discount on classes and private tutoring offered by Kala.

Please note that this is a studio residency only; housing is not included. Artists are responsible for finding their own housing.

APPLICATION GUIDELINES: Applications are reviewed four times per year. Artists may apply for 1 to 3 month residencies, and must specify the desired residency length in the application. (6 month residencies also exist, but are only available to continuing and returning Artists-in-Residence who have done the 3 month Evaluative Review.)

(Note that there is some overlap of months. This means that artists applying on January 31 would have first dibs on residencies starting in June, but artists applying on April 30 would also be able to start in June if there are spots available.)   MORE INFORMATION >>
