The SRISA Studio Monitor Art Residency provides an opportunity for young artists to continue developing their personal body of work while at the same time gaining valuable experience in a role of responsibility within an artistic and academic setting.
The recipient will be provided with full access to the SRISA studios (outside of scheduled class hours) which hosts state of the art printmaking, photography, bookbinding, fashion design, 3D sculpture, painting, and drawing facilities. In addition, the recipient will have the option to take one (1) SRISA course per term with waived tuition. The recipient will be invited to exhibit artwork completed during the residency towards the termination of the program.
In exchange for these opportunities, the recipient of the Studio Monitor Art Residency will be responsible for helping keep the main administrative and studio art campuses open in the evenings and over the weekends. The Monitor is responsible for opening and closing the school and monitoring the people that enter and leave the premises. Additional requests may include assisting in the studios, assisting on housing check-in, and during SRISA extra-curricular events. These commitments are usually 10-20 hours per week depending on the schedule, calendar, and events. Schedules are assigned at the beginning of each month.
The Studio Monitor Art Residency is a one-year position beginning either with the Spring or Fall academic semesters. A limited number of residents will be selected each year.
Note: This is not a paid residency. Residents are financially responsible for themselves during their stay. Residents will need to make their own housing arrangements but are welcome to take advantage of SRISA housing options if they wish.
The candidate must have received his or her Bachelor of Arts before the start of the residency.
