Studio Residency Grant

The Studio Grant is a six- to eight-week residency for artists to create new work in any of our studio disciplines: intaglio, letterpress, papermaking, screenprinting, photography, or ceramics. WSW invites applications from artists at any stage in their careers.

This grant includes a stipend of $350/week, up to $500 for materials used during the residency, up to $250 for travel within the Continental US, free onsite housing, and 24/7 studio access. WSW can also provide technical advice and production assistance.

This residency has a two-step juried process: WSW selects the artists, and then sends their work to the appropriate funders for final approval.

The residency in a nutshell:

Application due: April 1, midnight EST
Notification date: via email by June 30
Residency length: 6-8 weeks
