Women's Studio Workshop Invites Applications for Art-in-Education Artist's Book Residency
Women's Studio Workshop

The Women’s Studio Workshop in Rosendale, New York, mission is to operate and maintain an artists’ workspace that encourages the voice and vision of individual women artists, to provide professional opportunities for artists at various stages of their careers, and to promote programs designed to stimulate public involvement, awareness, and support for the visual arts.

In support of that mission, WSW is accepting applications for its Art-in-Education Artist’s Book Grant.

The eight-to-ten-week residency is awarded to two emerging women artists to create a new, hand-printed and bound, limited edition artist’s book and teach young people. Generally, the resident dedicates her first month to producing the book. WSW can provide technical advice; training on equipment, techniques, and materials; and production assistance.

During the second half of the residency, the artist works with young people in WSW’s studios, teaching one to two days a week for three to four weeks, and visiting the students twice in school. Studio space and equipment is reserved for students during program hours, but artists may work at any time outside of those hours.

The program provides a stipend of $400 per week for up to ten weeks, up to $750 for materials, up to $250 for travel within the continental United States, free onsite housing, and 24/7 studio access during non-AIE session time.

All applications must be physically mailed to Women's Studio Workshop with a postmark no later than November 15, 2015.
