Grants Art-in-Education Artist’s Book Grant

Womens Studio WorkshopKingston, New York, United States


Opportunity Description

International Deadline: November 15, 2016 – The Art-in-Education Artist’s Book Grant is an eight- to ten-week residency awarded to two emerging artists to create a new artist’s book and teach young people. Generally, the resident dedicates her first month to producing a limited edition artist’s book, which is hand-printed and bound in the studio. WSW can provide technical advice; training on new 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/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 AIE.

This grant includes a stipend of $350/week for up to ten weeks, up to $750 for materials, up to $250 for travel within the Continental US, free onsite housing, and 24/7 studio access during non-AIE sessions.

Postmark deadline*: November 15
