PAINTING AND MIXED MEDIA
May 21-June 21
4 undergraduate studio credits; $2,400
Now in its fourth decade, this internationally renowned program offers serious artists an opportunity to work intensively in a private studio and receive individual critiques from faculty selected for their diversity and experience. Artists are supported in their painting, drawing, small-scale installation and mixed-media work.
Each participant has exclusive use of a studio throughout the program. Located in Chelsea, the studios offer privacy, while supporting an environment that encourages experimentation and the development of new ideas and directions, within a community of ambitious, hardworking artists. Faculty will conduct studio visits and discuss each participant's work on an individual basis. Exposure to the New York art world complements the on-site residency program.
Equally important to the faculty critiques are the special lectures, scheduled approximately once a week. Given by guest artists, critics and gallery directors, these talks are designed to offer further insight into the realities of the working artist. Gallery tours are also included. Participants have access to the studios daily from 8:00 am to 11:00 pm. Overnight stays are allowed with entry to the building prior to 11:00 pm. The program culminates in an open studio exhibition.
Faculty and lecturers have included Andrea Champlin, Ofri Cnaani, Gregory Coates, Steve DeFrank, Peter Hristoff, Tobi Kahn, Amy Myers, Bruce Pearson, Danica Phelps, David Ross, Jerry Saltz and Simon Watson.
