South America In Winter - Slow Down Time Non Toxic Printmaking 

 

During winter in the southern hemisphere it’s time to slow down. Looking out in the morning, seeing the hills covered in a delicate white layer that stretches to a perfectly drawn line dividing the world, signifies that it’s time to stay cozy indoors and find inspiration in the studio where fresh ideas and projects will blossom.

Set amidst forested hills and ever-changing mountain hues, our artist-in-residence programs offer a supportive space for printmakers worldwide. Immerse yourself in a setting that evolves with the seasons, where technical guidance and professional facilities await. Join us for short residencies spanning one to two weeks in June, July, or August at Villa los Coihues near Lake Gutiérrez.

One week residency program fee is $150 USD with accommodation and 24hs access to the studio. Each extra day is $30 USD. If you come with a partner you pay $200 USD for both.

Applications Due: May 25th, 2024.
