2018-2019 Artist-in-Residence Program
APPLY TODAY >

The Sugar Hill Children's Museum of Art & Storytelling is offering an eleven-month residency for one visual artist. The selected artist will be granted a non-living studio, $7,000 honorarium and the possibility of earning additional income by leading workshops with museum patrons. Artists will have access to a 450 square-foot studio space (for floorplan, click here) and will be expected to work in their studio a minimum of 15 hours per week and present their projects by participating in open studio activities and events.

For this residency, the Museum is looking to award one visual artist whose artistic practice will resonate with children ages 3 to 8 and their families, and reflect a relationship to the demographics, location or history of Sugar Hill. The selected artist should be comfortable interacting with children, families and entertaining conversations with curious museum visitors about their studio process.
