Art is a way of life. You may work in an office, on site, or be a student but inside you see the world differently. For you the world is brighter, shapes interest you, colours have feelings. You love to work with your hands. You think in pictures and the urge to express these images is overwhelming. If this describes you then you need to apply today to the Artist in Residency program. You are an artist and you deserve a place to be who you are. No matter what your career is you are first an artist and art is your way of experiencing the world.
Let Your Light Shine!
