SFAI is currently seeking applications for the Fall 2013 Richard Diebenkorn Teaching Fellowship. Established in 1998 by the generosity of the family of painter Richard Diebenkorn—both an alumnus and longtime faculty member at SFAI—the Fellowship provides an opportunity for artists to teach at SFAI and have sufficient time and financial support to work in the studio. Through the semester-long structure of the Fellowship, the residency not only offers each participating artist an invaluable opportunity to further their own studio work; it also leaves a deep, lasting impression on SFAI’s students. This year’s Fellowship is open only to Bay Area artists. Artists must apply by the deadline of Friday, November 16, 2012. Please see details below about important dates, application fees, eligibility, and process.

Applications are sought from early to mid-career artists who have an established body of work in the media of painting and drawing. Applicants must reside within the Bay Area. (In alternate years, the Richard Diebenkorn Teaching Fellowship is awarded to U.S. residents, living anywhere outside of the Bay Area.) The review committee will consider the applicant’s experience and its appropriateness to the SFAI curriculum, as well as quality of work and written statements.

Fellowship Award
The Richard Diebenkorn Teaching Fellow will receive 25,000 USD in compensation to teach two courses in the Fall 2013 semester, give a public lecture in the Visiting Artists and Scholars Lecture Series, and engage with the SFAI community through individual student critiques, academic programs, and activities.

This prestigious award has been given to fourteen artists since 1998, including Brad Brown, Shaun O’Dell, Iona Rozeal Brown, Josephine Taylor, Taravat Talepasand, and Judie Bamber. See a complete list of recipients here.
