WSW Art-in-Education Residency

July 26, 2012


Each year WSW awards two six-week Art-in-Education residency grants for emerging artists working in book arts. Grantees will teach young people through our studio-based Art-in-Education program called “Hands-on-Art” and have the opportunity to spend time creating new work at WSW.

For these residencies, WSW is especially interested in providing opportunities to emerging artists who come from different regions of the country and/or diverse cultural backgrounds. Each award includes a $400 per week stipend for up to ten weeks, and a $750 materials budget, housing, travel costs (within the Continental US), and unlimited studio access.


Generally, the first month of the residency is devoted to all aspects of design and production of a limited edition artist’s book. WSW maintains hand papermaking, intaglio, letterpress, and silkscreen printing studios. WSW staff will provide technical advice, and assistance with editioning.

During the second half of the residency, the artist works with young people in WSW’s Art-in-Education program. In this portion of the residency, students have access to all WSW studios, so studio time for visiting artists is limited to hours when there are no students.The visiting artist will have up to 40 student contact hours over a one month period. The Art-in-Education curriculum will be developed by WSW staff, using some aspect of the visiting artist’s work or book project.


The residencies will take place the following year, in September-October with high school students, or March-April with fifth graders.

Postmark deadline is Nov 15
Grant recipients are notified by Feb 1.
