California Institute of the Arts welcomes applications to its inaugural Summer Art Residency, located on campus in Valencia, California. Led by the CalArts School of Art, this five-week residency offers an opportunity for emerging and/or mid-career artists working in all disciplines to advance their work in an immersive studio environment.

The Summer Art Residency enables you to construct your own experience by selecting from a dynamic program of events, field trips, workshops, seminars and independent studio time, supported by access to diverse creative practitioners.

With an explorative philosophy that allows you to concentrate on your work in an innovative and focused environment, this residency facilitates self-directed inquiry, enabling you to shape a unique residency experience that challenges and develops your practice in new ways.

The residency is ideal for those seeking the time and resources to investigate new ideas and deepen existing inquiries into the conception, production and reception of work, providing concentrated time to develop a project with structured support, feedback and conversation. The CalArts campus offers a diversity of resources for artists providing access to production studios as well as a renowned library of special collections and rare artist books, a comprehensive film and video archive, and a variety of on-site campus facilities.

The school’s proximity to Los Angeles provides easy access to a vibrant community of world-class museums, a robust arts scene, and varied geological sites such as beaches, mountains and desert.

Residents will be housed in CalArts on-campus graduate apartment suites. Each suite has either five or six individual bedrooms with a shared living room, kitchen and bathroom, and access to the CalArts swimming pool and laundry facilities.

Preferred deadline
February 1–March 1 (applications will continue to be accepted after this date and considered space permitting).

The residency fee for 2017 is set at 4,150 USD (3,300 USD tuition & 850 USD housing) for five weeks and includes on-campus accommodation with kitchen, studio/workspace, residency coordination, some meals (organized around events) and access to institute facilities.
