Call for Artist-In-Residence

Menaul School, an independent, coeducational school with a mission to make our students “world smart,” is offering one visual artist 1-2 weeks in Spring 2020 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 understand 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 a stipend, studio space, supplies, and full room and board.

Expectations:

As Menaul’s Artist-in-Residence, s/he may live on campus in residential faculty housing and 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.
