Call for Artist-In-Residence
Menaul School, an independent, coeducational school with a mission to develop the minds, bodies, and spirits of its students, is offering one visual artist 1-2 weeks in Spring 2017 to make artwork. We are committed to providing one visual artist the opportunity and resources to experiment and develop new work in a nurturing environment; to engage deeply with our educational community; and to further understanding about the critical role art plays in our world by sharing the process of making new work alongside our students. The artist-in-residence will receive studio space, supplies, and full room and board.
established out-of-state artist
As Menaul’s Artist-in-Residence, s/he will live on campus in residential faculty housing and will be free to work on their own art in a dedicated studio space adjacent to the Rendon Art Building, a restored historic horse barn that houses both 2D spaces and 3D ceramic facilities.
It is expected that the Artist will openly share his/her process with Menaul students and engage them in art-focused dialogue. In short we’re looking to expose our students to the skills and determination required among committed artists alongside the rich rewards that a dedicated life in the arts delivers.

Menaul School, founded by a Presbyterian minister in 1896, is an independent, college preparatory school serving students in grades 6-12. Originally founded as a Pueblo Training School, Menaul housed rural students from Northern New Mexico where opportunities for formal education were spare. Today, Menaul operates as a regional and international boarding school, with students from all cultural and socio-economic backgrounds. In 2016, our educational community included students from 17 countries with sixty percent self-identifying among distinct racial/ethnic groups.
