Hello! I've created an artist residency (as social practices work) that begins this September at the Palo Alto Art Center. Actively seeking artists who are also parents.
Apply HERE. Deadline: August 1st.
Being Human is a new artist residency for 10 Bay Area artists who will participate in a series of 8 workshop sessions. The workshops are led by artist Jill Miller, who specializes in socially engaged artwork and has designed the series as a part of her art practice. Meetings will take place at the Palo Alto Art Center and is organized in conjunction with the exhibition Care and Feeding: The Art of Parenthood (September 15 – December 30, 2018).
Participants will use their parenting struggles and challenges as a catalyst for producing art. They will meet once each week for eight weeks, and each week’s activities will be inspired by one of Erik Erikson’s Eight Stages of Psychosocial Development. Followed consecutively, these stages trace the complete life span of a human being.
· Artists will each receive a stipend for child care of approximately $800.
· Sessions are short, manageable, and stimulating - 3 hours each
· At the end of the 8 weeks artists will have a culminating exhibition
