The Women’s Studio Workshop in Rosendale, New York, operates and maintains an artists’ workspace with the aim of encouraging the voice and vision of individual women artists, providing professional opportunities to women artists at various stages of their careers, and promoting programs designed to stimulate public involvement, awareness, and support for the visual arts.
In support of that mission, WSW is accepting applications for its Art-in-Education Artist’s Book Grant.
The eight-to-ten-week residency is awarded to two emerging women artists in support of their efforts to create a new artist’s book and teach young people. Generally, residents dedicate their first month to producing a limited edition artist’s book, which is hand-printed and bound in the studio. WSW can provide technical advice; training on new equipment, techniques, and materials; and production assistance.
During the second half of the residency, residents work with young people in WSW’s studios, teaching one to two days/week for three to four weeks, and visiting the students twice in school. Studio space and equipment is reserved for students during program hours, but artists may work at any time outside of AIE.
The program provides a stipend of $350 per week for up to ten weeks, up to $750 for materials, up to $250 for travel within the continental United States, free onsite housing, and 24/7 studio access during non-AIE sessions.
All applications must be physically mailed to Women’s Studio Workshop and postmarked no later than November 15, 2016
