Artists Deep Dive Online Residency

Have you considered a dedicated and focused time that would provide an opportunity to discover innovative and fresh new pathways into your art? Perhaps there’s an idea that keeps calling to you or a variation of your current work that you are wanting to explore? Maybe its something that’s so different and “not you” that you’re shying away?

Then an art residency is the best, next step! An art residency encourages and enables artists to explore new materials, connect with new people, experience life in a new practise and integrate that experience into their art.

Art residencies can be a big leap and maybe you are not quite ready to apply for a residency away from home, but you want to have some of that experience. Or you are looking for a push forward into your art – then – the Artists Deep Dive may be for you.

The Artists Deep Dive is perfect if you:

-want time for focus with guided tips and ideas
-explore that idea that’s been calling to you
-have just touched the surface of what is possible for that idea….
-want to engage with a community of other artists
-build a structure that you can repeat again on your own
-can commit to a month-long focus
-say YES to those ideas that touch your creative spirit
