The Emerging Artist Residency represents 25 years that Franconia Sculpture Park has upheld a long-running work exchange model that equally cares for artists and organizational sustainability. While offering professional support and growth to emerging artists, the 50-acre sculpture park receives site and operational support with the help of their Emerging Artist Residents. This is a process-based residency. The rural setting and the chance to work alongside peers, mid-career artists, and visiting art curators create a dynamic setting for critical, technical, and professional growth within a collaborative exchange model.
Artist Family Residencies
Stipend: $2000 July 12-16, 2022 or July 19-23, 2022 | Youth (Aged 8-13) July 26-30, 2022 | Teen Intensive (Grades 9-12)
The Artist Family Residency supports Artist Parents and Artist Youth alike with a one-week residency at Franconia during July. Coinciding with their Youth Installation Summer Camps, Artist Youth are invited to camp during the day while the Artist Parent can be on-site for research or production. For artist parents, this is a self-directed residency. The Artist Family benefits both from the individual creative process and also through togetherness. A culminating Parents & Community sharing of Summer Camp Works provides a joined capstone experience for the Artist Family.

Our topic this month for Tending the Creative Soul is Time Management! We’re stretched in soooooo many directions with our busy lives and with all those important (?) things to do. So the question is how do we make time for our creative process? Do we need to schedule time? Isn’t the creative process spontaneous? Do scheduling and spontaneity work together?
Bring your snack and beverage of choice and your questions and ideas for our Zoom gathering Wednesday, May 12 from 5:00 to 6:00 pm.
