Artist in Residence
Deadline: May 15
Montgomery College Rockville Art Department
We encourage proposals that cultivate collaborative work between artists and students. The three-week Artist in Residence program (AIR) of the Rockville Art Department augments the studio arts curriculum by providing students with direct hands-on experience in the arts that is guided by visiting artists. This is accomplished by: Enabling students to work with contemporary artists other than faculty, Fostering a vested commitment between artist, student and the educational setting of the College, and Enhancing the Department’s curriculum.
We are seeking individuals or groups with a wide range of artistic practices outside the traditional studio arts foundation curriculum. Proposals should offer a mutually supportive creative learning environment between students, classes, and Artist.
Professional artists or Artists Groups in all visual arts disciplines who are interested in working with students are encouraged to apply. Preference will be given to applicants whose work and proposal expand on the working range of foundation level teaching.
A stipend of $2000 will be available for the three-week AIR, which includes transportation, installation of work and compensation of time. Student materials for any proposed collaboration with students will be supported through a separate budget and will be determined based on the size and scope of the work.
Candidates should submit a proposal for collaborative processes and programming that provides foundation level students with direct hands-on experience in the arts that is guided by the Artist. Programming may include an exhibition of the Artist’s work, workshops, talks, field trips and/or any other areas of student art engagement.
The selected Artist/Artist Group will be expected to be available during scheduled class times over the three-week programming. The Artist/Artist Group will be provided with a calendar of the Art Department’s scheduled classes and will consult with the Special Projects Coordinator in preparing a program that is compatible with this schedule.
