Kala Art Institute Artist Residency, Berkeley ARTIST-IN-RESIDENCE PROGRAM

Deadlines: March 15, July 15, October 15 annually
NO HOUSING INCLUDED

Artists working in various printmaking techniques, photo-processes, book arts and digital media including video production can apply to become an Artist-in-Residence at Kala Art Institute. Residency applications are accepted online three times per year. Artists who apply for residency should be familiar with at least one of the media offered at Kala. Considerations for acceptance are conceptual creativity and technical knowledge. Kala encourages use of both traditional and new technologies, and their admixture.

Resident artists receive 24-hour access to the printmaking workshop and/or electronic media center, individual storage space, possible exposure on Kala’s website and in other exhibitions at Kala or outside exhibition spaces, and participation in a vital, international artistic community. Artists also receive a 20% discount on classes and private tutoring offered by Kala.

Please note that this is a studio residency only; housing is not included. Artists are responsible for finding their own housing.

IF YOU ARE ACCEPTED TO THE PROGRAM

You will find out if you have been accepted approximately two weeks after the application deadline. Kala’s Studio Managers sometimes require the artist to complete certain classes or technical tutorials before beginning the residency. If this is the case, the artist is given a list of the classes/tutorials required. At this point the artist may accept or reject the offer of a residency.

If the residency offer is accepted, the artist completes the required conditions within a reasonable time frameif needed (approximately 2 months), signs the residency contract, and pays a $100 security deposit and the first month’s fee. The Studio and EMC Managers give the artist studio/equipment orientations.
