Seawhite Studio Residencies Sept 2024

Seawhite Studio Residencies Sept 2024

Course Dates Sept 30th - Oct 4th (Mon - Friday) 2024

When you sign up for a residency we want to make sure that you get as much as possible out of the experience. To guarantee this, places on future residencies will be by application, ensuring that each residency is comprised of artists who are working at the same level with similar ambitions. There are a maximum of 6 artists working alongside a Seawhite tutor. If you are keen to come on one then please specify which Residency you would prefer (the date and resident Seawhite tutor).

The residency week is an excellent opportunity to share, communicate and learn about the intricacies of each other’s practice. The work I will be making will depend largely on my involvement at time, but I try and keep it as close to my normal week in the studio as possible. My work is heavily involved in systems, processes and creating surfaces which give the paintings different atmospheric qualities and conclusions.Last year’s residency became one of the most productive and insightful weeks I had all year. It created a dialogue with fellow artists sometimes missing after you leave art school. It was a collaborative learning experience, I found it an environment where I could pass on my knowledge and experience. I often find many artists are reluctant to expose their processes to others but being open about them made it a fulfilling, useful and generous experience.

“We work hard. With the option of getting into the studio at 8am each day it creates a working atmosphere where you turn up, ready to push forward and do serious play! It is inspiring seeing the individuality of each artist in their work and processes. When we talk to each other there are always astute and helpful observations made about the work.” (Emily Ball)

Apply for a place on a Residency

To ensure that your time is really well spent during your residency week we would like you to make an application. Preparing well before you come and having an online tutorial will be a huge benefit. Please submit 9 images of your work and two pieces of writing, each no more than 300 words. The first should be about your process and inspiration for your work. The second is about what you would like to get out of the residency and what you think you might need in terms of materials and equipment.

We will consider your application and get back to you quickly. If your application is successful we will fix a date and time for a one hour online tutorial with the tutor running the residency of your choice. This tutorial is an opportunity for a discussion about the most productive way to prepare for the residency week in terms of studies and preparatory work to bring with you and also what the studio can have in place for you when you arrive. It is also a time to discuss your work and get feedback from a fellow artist.

"Other than the pure luxury of time set aside for uninterrruped days in the studio, the highlight of the residency was the rounds that Emily would make each day, spending time with each of us, making observations and sprinkling wisdom….I loved that she was so generous in sharing her own practise with us as well."
