Stewarding Life's Essentials, Nurturing Life's Potential

Free Columbia 2016/2017 Painting Year open for applications

October 2016 – May 2017

A new approach to residency:

This year we will work in a different form, one of semi-independent residency. In this residency we will explore learning through artistic practice and investigation. Each block of study will consist of 3 weeks of “class” work where the subject will be presented, exercises given and work done individually or in a group setting. Following this time there will be 3 weeks of independent or collaborative project time. Students will design a project to investigate the subject just studied, work can be done in the studio or elsewhere. The group will have a check in time once a week to see how others are progressing and a final observation at the end to share results.
