Skowhegan has a long tradition of offering artists the opportunity to engage fully with their studio practice, with their peers, and with distinguished faculty and mentors. The experience has proven to be transformative time and time again for those artists who are able to take full advantage of the experimentation and critical discourse possible in this unique community in Maine.
While on campus, participants are given individual studio spaces, as well as access to a sculpture studio, a fresco studio, a media lab, a library composed of over 10,000 volumes, over 300-acres of farmland, forests, and lakefront, and a rich community of artists. Alumni often report that the intensity of the Skowhegan experience has had a profound effect on their work and their lives. In order to allow others entry, no participant is allowed to return for a second summer. It is a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
2018 Summer Session~ June 9 – August 11 ~ Deadline January 10, 2018

The Studios at MASS MoCA Residency Program Spring/Summer 2018
Artist & Writer Residencies hosted by MASS MoCA’s Assets for Artists Program
Application for Sessions from April 4, 2018 – October 2, 2018
Application Deadline: January 8, 2018 11:59pm. No application fee. (Please note that if you are eligible to apply for a free 6-week residency — with travel assistance — for artists in Puerto Rico affected by Hurricane Maria, please go to http://bit.ly/2B27wST to apply by December 18, 2017.)
MASS MoCA invites artists and writers to apply for residencies from 1 week to 8 weeks in length…We welcome applications from artists in all career stages, income levels, and disciplines (painters, writers, fiber artists, printmakers, performers, designers, photographers, filmmakers, etc.) whose practice allows them to work quietly (no power tools in the private studios, and no music out loud – headphones only). Groups/collectives may apply to work on joint projects. The studios have light-duty ventilation, so an art practice generating strong fumes cannot be accommodated.
Full Cost~ $650/week
Financial Aid~ All applicants will be considered for subsidies based on artistic merit, readiness to benefit from the residency, and financial need.
Application Deadline~ January 8, 2018, 11:59pm. Click here to apply.
Independent Residencies in the Leighton Artists Studios
The nine unique studios are each designed by a distinguished Canadian architect and provide a perfect setting for individuals and collectives from a wide variety of artistic genres to create new work. Leighton artists contribute significantly to culture and the arts in Alberta, throughout Canada, and around the world.
Although all studios are equipped with kitchenettes, artists do not live in their studios; on-site accommodation and meal plans are provided separately.
Artists with a professional standing in their field and emerging artists of promising talent are encouraged to apply. Applications are accepted from a variety of disciplines: writers, composers, singer-songwriters, visual artists, screenwriters, playwrights, literary translators, curators, art theorists, and professionals working in theatre, dance, and film at the conceptualization or research stage of a project.
Applications are being accepted for the following time periods in 2018: May 1 – June 30, 2018 and August 1 – December 31, 2018 (no availability in July 2018).
Residences must be at least one week in length to a maximum of four weeks.
